  • Almost 12 million pageviews82,000 editsFor example:http://www.appropedia.org/AEF_greywater accessed almost 20,000 times and translated into Spanish and recreated in many places.
  • Almost 1000 Appropedia FB fans. Some helped to find exemplary (in some sustainable aspect) communities around the world.
  • Small gathering helped envision a sustainable Humboldt... Feedback is excellent and this needs to be recreated on a community-wide scale. Open Space Technology style (but wait for last slides to mention that).

  • 95,456 tons of waste in 2008-A couple of billion incandescent light bulbs.-An RCEA building 10,000 ft high.driving 190 miles away (Dry Creek in Medford, OR and Anderson Landfill in Anderson, CA) with 21 tons at a time at 4.3 mpg produces enough CO2 per year to paint Eureka 8 inches deep.http://www.epa.gov/waste/nonhaz/municipal/pubs/msw07-fs.pdf for a quick fact sheet on the solid waste generated in the US.

    48. 48. RESILIENT. HONORING.<br />&quot;There is no endeavor more noble than the attempt to achieve a collective dream. When a city accepts as its mandate its quality of life; when it respects the people who live in it; when it respects the environment; when it prepares for future generations, the people share responsibility for that mandate, and this shared cause is the only way to achieve that collective dream.“<br />-Jaime Lerner, former mayor of Curitiba<br />
