Would you like to moderate Urban Sustain?
I want to hand this community over to someone who is active in sustainable living, understands the community focus, and who will encourage discussion via regular posts. You don't have to be an expert, but you do need to be actively learning, working on projects, etc. so that you can regularly share what you're doing with the community and thereby encourage others to do the same. I originally started the community for that purpose, but I'm no longer able to keep up.
Ideally, your journal will have lots posts about your sustainability projects and musings. Please leave a comment here or message me via LJ if you want to be considered.

Oh noes! I'm scared!
I'm not sure I have what it takes to do this. I'm pretty sure, given that I'm not sure, that I in fact don't have what it takes.
I hope you find someone worthwhile to host this community, I'm sorry to hear you can't do it anymore.
Yes, all the people I personally know who would do great at this, like you, are all too busy doing things like running farms :P
But of course the offer is open to you!

Thinking closer about it, I really shouldn't accept another computer-related project. They sound easy, I'm in front of the computer all the time. Alas, I don't want to be in front of the computer so much.
I wouldn't be able to give this community the attention it deserves.
Thank you, though.

I'll do it if no one else comes forward.
I'd offer as well. I keep forgetting this group is here (sounds awful, I know) and I'd quit posting quite so much on my journal about what's happening on my homestead since most of my readers were skimming that stuff. I started a different journal instead athttp://spiralowlcreations.wordpress.com
but now that I remember about this list, I'll definitely be posting again when it's relevant.
It's hot enough here most of the year that I try to spend my time outside smartly, which usually means early morning/late evening and have to find inside projects the rest of the day (lots of sewing, cooking and computer time LOL)

Shanghai Dongtan Eco-City
The Dongtan Eco-City would be a totally design self sufficient, sustainable city. But unfortunately, it is topped and all references to it was held from the website of Shanghai World Expo in 2010. The critics, such as China Digital Times claim that such projects are “designed by big-name foreign architectural and engineering firms who plunged into the projects with little understanding of Chinese politics, culture, and economics — and with little feel for the needs of local residents whom the utopian communities were designed to serve”.
