People is one of the 3 P’s

The other 2 are planet and prosperity.

In our class exercise, I had struggled to find a link to People for my district energy research.  It was easy to attach planet and prosperity…district energy is good for the planet and is an efficient and economical way of using energy.

Alas, the people link is what is referred to as an Eco-district.  See my next blog post for more on what eco-districts are.  The point I want to make is that eco-districts are most successful at the neighborhood level where community involvement is highest.  Citizens get more involved…that’s people!
