Durable Communities Emerge from Homes and Landscapes Powered by Sunshine
Individuals have an important role in taking actions that significantly reduce household carbon emissions and increase landscape sequestration of carbon. New and existing houses can run on sunshine thereby becoming energy positive. Sun-powered landscapes that are designed for flooding sequester carbon and manage stormwater thereby increasing resilience to climate change. These individual actions influence builders, town planners, neighbors, and neighborhoods to adopt norms aligned with natural processes, thus engendering more durable communities.
