I emailed my client today. He is relocating, and we have been talking about Asheville's "green" real estate market and how attractive it is...It is about "quality of life" issues. I said that I had a few possibilities, in terms of seeking and finding real estate possibilities for him...the juice of "positive momentum" to add to his living green suggestions.
I asked...How about
1) Talk. Be a "good neighbor". You can better gauge your own insights when you talk with those in the know.
2) Ask. Especially ask local folks .Reach out strongly for the insights of others.
3) Use your ingenuity and the resources available. Give it your best shot.
4) Celebrate life. Find humor, wherever you may be.
5) Remember that is just fine to start where you are.
Again...deep stewardship. I got thinking, as one travels down the road of life, isn't that what living "green" is all about?
Cradle to Cradle.One of my supreme favorites, this system proposes "a new strategy called eco-effectiveness. By learning from nature's 'design principles,' eco-effective design conceives industrial systems that emulate the healthy abundance of nature."
United States Social Forum. Provides "space to build relationships, learn from each other's experiences, share our analysis of the problems our communities face, and bring renewed insight and inspiration. It will help develop leadership and develop consciousness, vision, and strategy needed to realize another world."
Green Careers. An accessible career consulting practice "supporting the transition to careers that promote ecological, social and economic sustainability."
Ashevillage Building Convergence (ABC). Possibly an example of a project to be emulated in your town. Various Asheville communities come together to build beautiful neighborhood gathering places, learn sustainable solutions for our city and our world, strengthen connections to each other while celebrating life in Asheville.
