Richard Register discusses the concept of the Ecocity: an Ecocity is a human settlement that enables its residents to live a good quality of life while using minimal natural resources. It is threaded with natural habitat corridors, to foster biodiversity and to give residents access to nature for recreation. Its food and other goods are sourced from within its borders or from nearby. The majority of its residents live within walking or cycling distance of their workplace, to minimize the need for motorized transport. The goods industry produces within an ecocity are designed for reuse, remanufacture, and recycling. The industrial processes its uses involve reuse of by-products, and minimize the movement of goods.
