It examines a variety of grassroots sustainability enterprises such as low impact housing in the UK, eco-villages in Ireland, community gardening in Germany and turtle conservation in Costa Rica. It concludes by looking ahead to the future at governing frameworks for grassroots sustainability enterprises and smart green clean-tech economy. http://books.emeraldinsight.com/display.asp?isb=9781780524849&CUR=EUR
