Christie Walk-  A Piece of Ecocity

 

Christie Walk-  A Piece of Ecocity

DVD & CD-ROM


I was quite interested in seeing this, as it is a tour of an ecocity development right here in the heart of my hometown Adelaide... right within the city mile!  The first of its kind in Australia.  It was great to see the transformation of an old recycling depot into a lush eco-development, complete with beautiful gardens and large veggie garden, along with community areas and many eco-friendly, and money saving ideas.

We hear from several of the residents about what it's like to live in Christie Walk and the part each person plays in sustaining the community.  We see inside some of the apartments, and hear about how the features that have been built into it help with its lower footprint in many ways.  A lot of thought, sweat, and no doubt tears went into its design and creation and the people responsible should be proud of what they have achieved.

Also included is a CD-ROM "Moving Towards Urban Sustainability... the Christie Walk model", which is "an e-book of ideas, information and activities to encourage living more sustainably."

A really fascinating look at what can be done in our cities to create sustainable communities.  Well worth watching... and why not go on a tour of Christie Walk yourself, if you are in Adelaide!
