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.

Shanghai Dongtan Eco-City

(Link)
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”.
