Edens Lost and Found, a four hour PBSseries, showcases extraordinary stories of environmental rebirth in four very different American cities.
Each one-hour program examines the unique environmental, economic and social issues that each of these great cities face. Interviews with citizens, activists, politicians, urban planners and urbanites reveal how passion combined with innovative strategies can address the widespread problems facing many of America’s urban environments today. While these citizen activists and politicians come from different parts of the U.S., they share a common approach. It’s called “Sustainable Development”.
The World Commission on Environment and Development defines sustainable development as, “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. (Source: PBS)
