    Here’s my new year’s resolution (and legislative and public service role on goals for 2007). As a former legislator in California who was very active in climate change legislation, I will work harder this year to bring the private sector into the climate change debate. Too many people view action on climate change as a fad or the domain of government. In reality, we will only make action on climate and sustainable living successful once they become mainstream and part of our everyday thinking. This site is a great way to collect sustainable ideas and thoughts. Good luck in spreading it “liberally” around the world.

    While I’m not rich, I plan to invest in one or two green projects that offer affordable alternatives for other green-minded people who also aren’t rich, maybe in the areas of affordable housing. While I realize that R&D is exensive, why is EVERY GREEN THING, including toys, notions and accessories, so pricey that only rich greenies can buy them?

    While I’m not rich, I plan on researching green projects and investing in one or two that offer affordable alternatives for other green-minded people who aren’t rich, such as in the area of affordable housing. Why is everything green, including toys, notions and accessories, so damn expensive that only rich greenies can buy them?

    I would like to see a world wide network/movement created. Something that can make it easier for companies/designers/architects/buyers to find each other and help each others products have success on the market. It is hard to start something new. Green design is especially hard because it might be more expensive to make and sell and it has to break in to the established market. I live in Europe and I have the impression that there is a bigger sustainable/green design/consumer/production movement in the US. Americans I speak with think more is happening in Europe. Europe is divided by different cultures and different languages. I think there is a need for more cooperation between people commited. Your magazine helps this to happen by spreading information and good articles to debate like the recent one also debated by Archinect. Changing direction towards sustainable living could go faster if people around the world worked together. It shouldn´t be so hard to find products to support. At least in the states you have stores like Whole Foods which have helped the organic food market grow for consumers and producers. As a consumer it is too hard to find the cool products over here.

    In the true spirit of sustainability, let’s provide educational opportunities for students to explore creative ideas and concepts that will fuel the sustainable movement. Already, schools are introducing sustainability concepts into science, woodshop, design, entrepreneurship, and community service programs. The more students learn about the value of good intentions, good design, and good sense, the more they will seek out solutions to some of our global problems. This young generation has grown up with the double-edged gift of technology, let’s provide a productive environment for them to apply their academic and problem-solving skills in a sustainable context. Cheers!
