Living Green

Green Television

Living Green is a half-hour TV show that is designed to help you understand what it means to be “living green” in your own communities. Decisions made by different people, from homeowners to politicians, interact in unique ways to affect the use and conservation of water, of energy, and of our plants and animals. The focus of this show is to illustrate “green” design and management practices within and around urban areas. The flavor of the show is upbeat and even humorous at times when presenting the myriad of challenges and solutions associated with any environmental issue. Each show, while entertaining, is meant to inspire you to take local action and make a difference. The shows highlight a wide range of environmental issues, outlining the need for a united response at the local, and most important, individual level. Specific attention is paid to growth/environmental challenges, and the opportunities for you to help search for “win-win” strategies that balance socioeconomic and environmental concerns in your own community. Living Green highlights environmental challenges and solutions that are relevant to communities across Florida and the U.S.
