A review of what's visually/mentally stimulating

The Green(est?) Generation

 Green Design Bicycle Illustration

I teach a sustainable design course in which the students use bicycles to explore the city of Chicago and investigate various green institutions, events and concepts.

My students truly are the “Green Generation” (a much more interesting cultural moniker than my gen’s nihilistic “Generation-X”). Its great to see their enthusiasm for learning about—and promoting—healthier lifestyles, and the adaptation to a more sustainable society.

Their expectations that businesses, government, cities, and individuals all need to be changing lifestyle habits, modes of production and consumption to be less wasteful and more environmentally friendly is truly inspiring.

Above is a very nice illustration by one of my students (props to you Matt Ericks!).
