    you in the near, you can still make a difference participating in the activity to make it happen for others.

    As I mentioned in the first diary, you can help pave the way for affordable, sustainable housing by:

    Gathering and distributing information
    Nurturing networks among various parties
    Creating local chapters of involved organizations
    Creating a start-up local organization
    Leading or assisting in the navigation of state and local gov. entities
    Participating in design and construction
    Providing related design and construction training
    To those I should add:

    = Getting on the zoning commission to influence re gulations
    = Getting someone you know on the zoning commission to influence regulations
    = Networking to influence the Building Department
    = Participate in an intentional community, as a resident or friend of the community.

    One of the major differences between Democrats and Republicans is that the former have the moral imagination to see the moral dimension of financial affairs, while the latter do not. Some pragmatists are exceptions.

      you'll be more informed about you might contribute to coping with Climate Change with the housing you have for yourself.
