Here at Eco Cities you will find articles, interviews, graphics, photos and maybe the occasional video packed full with inspirational material. Why inspire? We believe that the current journalistic output regarding climate change and environmentalism more broadly, focuses to heavily on the “grand issues” the big “breaking stories” but fails to empower its readers. It could be argued that it isn’t the role of journalists to tell people how they should react to news items and information, however, it is our concern that by ignoring the many positive environmental actions available to people, that the fight against climate change is damaged and progress is forfeited for anger.
So what do we mean by “positive environmental actions for city life”? Well first of all, we take as a given the scientific consensus on man made climate change. Second of all we value the incredible power and imagination that people have. By combining the desire for change and the want of a better world, with information on effective strategies, scientific thought and knowledge we can all make the kind of radical changes in our lifestyles demanded by climate science. Not only do we believe the changes can be made, but that making them will be better for everybody. Life will be more social, more pleasurable, more fulfilling and less damaging to our fragile, magnificent natural world.
