The Green Leap

This chapter discusses how the “greenness” of communities is the result of collective decisions made by citizens, developers, and policy makers. The dynamic interactions among all stakeholders play a critical role in creating and maintaining a biodiverse community. The chapter outlines how each stakeholder, whether he or she is a citizen, developer, or policy maker, impacts the ability of cities to implement more green developments that focus on biodiversity conservation.
