Social-Environmental Planning: The Design Interface Between Everyforest and Everycity Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the environment, climate change, and global warming taking center stage in the national debate, the issues seem insurmountable and certainly unsolvable at the local level. Written by Chris Maser, international consultant on forest ecology, sustainable forestry practices, and sustainable development, Social-Environmental Planning: The Design Interface Between Everyforest and Everycity focuses on community based solutions, emphasizing how the heavy lifting of sustainability will always be done inside existing cities and communities. Based on the author 's forty years of experience, the book covers the sustainability of the planet and its population when dealing with climate change.

The book provides an in-depth understanding of the commonalities of pattern between Everyforest and Everycity. Maser suggests that before changes can be made, society must adapt to the circumstances of global climate change as they already are, and then determine what we can do to stabilize global climate as effectively and quickly as possible. He explores the reciprocal interface between communities and the landscape and how, when this interface is recognized and understood, it can create solutions that work. With this comprehension, people can adapt to the present and begin determining what they can do now to leave the planet a little better for each generation.

Book News Annotation:

Having studied forests and their interaction with people for some four decades, Maser discerns a basic pattern from which all specific cases diverge in particular directions and to various degrees. He sets out the core principles of social-environmental planning in terms of the human dimension, nature's rules of engagement, shared relationships between the forest and the city, and a century for healing. Among specific topics are language and communication, the law of cosmic unification, patterns across the landscape, ecology and economy, and toward a social-environmental equality in a diverse world.
