You're Susty Life In A Box



Great products solve big difficult problems. If a better world is what we want, then approaching sustainability like it’s a consumer product may be the best way of achieving our goals. After all most people want to live in a sustainable manner and if it's available to purchase they would buy it.

A message from the COO of NextGenUrban, Vince Carter

Market Solutions Will Save The Planet


In the wake of the U.N.'s release of the Sustainable Development Goals, a debate is now raging among stakeholders about whether or not the goals are realistic and financially feasible.

Given the complexity of issues like climate change, poverty, health, resource scarcity, and the global economy it is no wonder people are doubtful that achieving progress is possible.

Green is NOT Sustainable!



The media has recently been contacting me with questions about sustainable development. During these interviews I frequently must clarify what qualifies as Sustainable Development and what does not.



There is a common misconception that Green Buildings can be considered 'sustainable' which they can not.



I have taken to using the increasingly frequent media interviews as an opportunity to highlight the distinction between Green Buildings and my company's product and innovative market solution for delivering "Sustainable Lifestyle Communities". The following is a brief overview of that message.


Defining what Sustainable Development is (and what Green Building is not) is a...
