Green Urbanism Down Under

This book sets out to answer a simple question: What can Americans learn from Australians about creating more green urban lifestyles? This book answers that question by drawing on the similarities between the two contries, not only in people and culture, but also in the national landscape. What results are practical suggestions about urban planning, attitudes toward space and communities, sustainable urban transportation, offsetting the carbon footprint of individuals and groups, preserving biodiversity and wildlands, and many other ways that Australia has been experimenting with sustainable and green practices.
