ReInventing The World Series

Is "sustainable cities" an oxymoron or can they be made to work?

A printer-friendly version of this page 50 minutes
Closed Captioned

Directed by David Springbett and Heather MacAndrew
Produced by Asterisk Productions, Ltd.
Host and Narrator: Des Kennedy
Produced in association with Vision TV

As the world's cities grow and resources shrink, will we be able to live sustainably with the earth - and with each other? Can we take care of people and the environment? A community watershed project in Sao Paolo, Brazil shows us how. Can urban planning be a win-win for everyone?

This program looks at what sustainability means in locations as diverse as East L.A., Sao Paolo, and Curitiba, Brazil, Vancouver and Portland. Jane Jacobs, Bill McKibben, Bill Rees, California senator Martha Escutia, and John Ryan offer their ideas on what living sustainably in the world's cities means.

The other programs in the series are:

Work and Time - A program about stress. How we can overcome being over-worked and out of time.

Food - Devising a sustainable food system -- one that is healthy, accessible, and affordable.
