sustainable planning 

 Community Planning Consulting

  • Design Charrettes and workshops management
  • Multi-disciplinary planning for creating a nourishing people friendly village atmosphere
  • Solutions focusing on moving people, not the car
  • Land use planning with respect for the existing environment, ecology and climate.
  • Research to guide and strengthen your own planning activities

Community health depends on the health and diversity of its environment. Quality of life is superb when the architecture of a community strengthens human interaction and minimizes outflows

(Outflow examples: wastewater treated but then dispersed downstream, therefore lost to the village; external utilities exporting funds from community members)


Educational Opportunities

Courses include green building materials, solar hot water, and more.
