Loving where you live

“The ultimate measure of sustainability is when people tell us they love where they live.”

–Eric Strauss, from his talk at the Southern California Academy of Sciences today, “The Frontier of Urban Ecology: The Challenge of Rejuvenating America’s Cities”

I suspect that our class of future Landscape Architects may have been the only non-scientists in the room. So I just loved that the example Eric gave of “loving where you live” was the one of local people working together to plant trees.
