image of Designing our Future
This volume focuses primarily on society at the local and regional levels and on a scenario in which human beings coexist harmoniously with nature. This ideal society is examined in terms of the relationships between villages or towns and their natural environment. It also looks at how these villages and towns can achieve local or regional independence in the face of pressures toward centralization and globalization. This book highlights the importance of developing a society in harmony with nature through the networking of diverse communities to promote and achieve local independence.

During this time, total worldwide energy consumption doubled. In recent years, this type of lifestyle has been rethought, building a strong desire for the creation of a sustainable society.
