Bioregional Solutions: For Living on One Planet: 08 (Schumacher Briefings)

by HRH The Prince of Wales (Foreword), Pooran Desai (Author), Sue Riddlestone (Author)

Synopsis

We live in a consumer society, and over-consumption is the driving force of environmental degradation. This stark reality led Pooran Desai and Sue Riddlestone to found BioRegional Development Group. In this Briefing they show how we can meet more of our needs for wood products, paper, textiles, food and housing from local renewable and waste resources. They outline the theoretical framework of bioregional development and the award winning practical solutions that BioRegional have developed with industry partners. They quantify how we can significantly reduce CO2 emissions and recycle waste, and so greatly reduce our ecological footprint.
