Summer Reading! Now that you are planning your holiday, it’s time to pick out your summer read. It is therefore a pleasure to introduce you to my latest book: Urban Ecology. The story is about a young Belgian environmental economist who comes to New York with the sole desire to create the first television show that introduces sustainable lifestyle stories. The book begins as a young woman’s journey in NYC which – as the years go by – translates itself in an expansion of her consciousness. With her combination of beauty, compassion, wit, and drive, she finds herself being in the company of the right people at the right time, whether coming across a concert in Central Park, a cocktail party downtown, or a meditation and spiritual healing session. Pamela’s fun and inspirational experiences give a first-hand glimpse into the development of one woman’s mission to make New York a more sustainable and environmentally conscious city. Urban Ecology was Eco Structure Magazine Editor’s Pick for May. “Urban Ecology” is a Euro-American diary that captures the beauty of city life and celebrates the four seasons through 30 short stories and color photographs about New York life as seen through the eyes of a European Environmental activist. Each short story ends with an assignment that has a social, environmental or economic impact, or sometimes all three. “That trinity reflects the three pillars of sustainable development policy”, Christina Koch of Eco Structure The book can be purchased at http://www.myurbanecology.com/ Price is $29.99 including shipping.
