Green Initiatives make Communities Sustainable

As I reflect on 2007 the Green movement experienced the fastest growth in this year. Awareness about the climate change also became more known to public as noble prize and United Nations brought spot light to this very important issue. Of course, oil getting close to $100.00 pr barrel also helped us realize that some thing must be done or else worst consequences await us. Design Professionals such as Architects and Engineers active in this field have also shown their level of interest by attending (over 20,000) the Green build conference in Chicago.

So as the Year 2007 comes to end, what do we expect next Year? At national level , we will all be bombarded with TV commercials since it is the presidential election year and politicians will make the climate change and energy a hot topic. So what can small local communities do under this scenario? How about making a commitment to smart government with goal of saving energy and reducing costs.

Basically Green Initiatives are the simple tools that needs to be applied no matter what happens to the environment or our energy dependence. Fortunately it also helps the environment and reduces the demand for nonrenewable fuels. In many communities the economy and tax base is not growing so the only option left to do is to cut costs and that is what Green initiatives are meant to achieve. This may be looked at as a dream and not some thing for real. Fortunately, it is reality for me. We are now ready to start a new project with a small City in upstate New York to undertake sustainable green community planning in 2008. As we undertake this journey, I hope to share the progress with the readers of this blog.

Good to hear from someone that is making a difference by building green and practicing organic farming.
We need more awareness about these practices so that other communities can also implement these ideas.
