Book Title: A Safe and Sustainable World: The Promise of Ecological Design

Author: Nancy Jack Todd

Book Description:

This exciting and motivational book epitomizes my personal philosophy and aspirations for the future. It summarizes the wide-spanning work initiated by the New Alchemy Institute and Ocean Arks International, which includes sustainable agriculture, aquaculture, architecture, energy production, and water purification. This book teaches through example that by correctly applying ecological principles to engineering design, we can simultaneously improve the quality of life while minimizing environmental impact in both developing and industrialized societies.
