Cardboard Castles and Other Amenities...

I am really interested in using different forms of cultural action to help build better communities. Communities are a vital social model, allowing us to tackle problems beyond the ability of individuals with the focus of a defined (usually relatively small) group of people. How do the arts and cultural work in general help communities grow more sustainable futures? If you have a cool website or project or your own ideas on these subjects please let me know.

Green Building 101... .2

GREEN BUILDING 101: Indoor Environmental Quality” is the latest addition to the “Green Building 101” series from Inhabitat. Although the article points out an important aspect to environmentally sustainable construction, namely that if done right it makes people healthier and more productive, it does not have nearly the breath of useful resources for implementing its own suggestions. It also does not site any specific scientific studies proving the impact of inside spaces, which would be really helpful to people having to justify to a penny pinching boss why s/he should make indoor environmental quality a priority.
