“The hard part is actually figuring out how to get that idea, compress it down into its essence and express it in a way that anybody could understand it. That’s the challenge for me. People kept on suggesting other people I should photograph or other terms; if I was to check my email, in the last day I probably got five more. I think there is a tremendous thirst that people have for information, and there was no real centralized place where all these ideas were being disseminated. That was really the impetus behind the project.”

    Wow!  This sustainability project viewed from #1-#9 has been an informative journey for me and I hope the public in general.  Vandana Shiva, as shown on a segment of one of your programs is refreshing, exciting, and makes me want to know more!  I love this Lexicon of Sustainability….a real education on something we take for granted ….so far!
