Natural Communities And Sustainability

In this presentation, I speak to an issue that I have been spending more time on. That through urbanization, many are left without a natural community in the city and as the glue between people is lost the balance is more difficult to maintain. A balance that is needed at the local level for any balance to be found at the global level
