About

We have the knowledge, skills, will, and resources to create sustainable places, yet are not doing so reliably. Nan Ellin identifies strategies for clearing hurdles along the path toward a living future, drawing from practices that are shifting the paradigm in urban design, placemaking, and community building. She shares a process for accelerating this shift in your own practice composed of 6 steps: Prospect, Polish, Propose, Prototype, Promote, and Present. Whereas green was the new black, producing myriad positive transformations through the sustainability movement, gold may be the new green, prospecting for the true riches in people and places.

  2. Ability to identify hurdles along your own path toward a living future.
