The DIY Approach to Reviving a Dying Street (Video)


Cities Can Be Green, But They Must First be Livable
Straight from London, England, our friend Elizabeth Press brings us a great short-video about the revival of a street.

It's truly a great example of what can be done if we only decide to do it. How's your street? Does it need a makeover? Via StreetFilms.
