Sustainable Community is a Community of Vitality via Bridge to Arts and Science

Updated on February 3, 2013

Sustainable Community is a community of vitality via bridge to arts ands science.

Citizens living in such community can aspire to pariticipate as stakeholders in community activities such as sports, music, arts and science as they so choose as stake holders of the community and inspiration of life from within.

Democracy works when wisdom of experience and knowledge prevail in the list of priorities where limited resources of time, money and other resources in a way that strengthen pursuit of quality life styles in everyday living.

Here in Fairfax, VA as an urban Northern Virginia community of about 2 million people is part of the larger Metro Washington DC Hub is a community of vitality now but working hard with cooperation from stakeholders such as citizens, worthy non-profits, small business, tech entrepreneurs and innovators, and our elected County Supervisors and Independent Town municipal government leaders.

Fairfax, VA Hometown USA__Aspiring to Sustainablity

Beyond Mid-21st Century

Our elected county leaders have published for all to see a list of 7 priorities. These priorities are not constant but often move up or down the list and new ones may appear or disappear as I have noted now as I have been monitoring this list as resident of this community. Top three priorities are as follows today:

(01) Education

(02) Community Safety

(03) Healthier Community

Here at NOVA community, we have much yet to accomplish to strengthen green living and quality life styles and share our experience and wisdom with other communities via existing and new community to community links that are affordable and meaningful to individuals and small groups to exercise ;

Promise of America that is part of our heritage and history.

Commmnity Twining experience since World War II, that has worked so well under the leadership particularly of Germany and France can be adopted to America in a way that can strengthe sustainable communities.

America's history and growth from "sea to sea" in 18th and 19th centuries is different from Europe where there are many nations, small and large must cooperate in an umbrella different than the federal, state and county umbrellas of Amercian democracy that allows top down policy from federal level that is not possible in European democracy in post-World War II period.

Disaster of the America Civil War, 1861-1866 merely 150 years ago influenced centralized form of government with wisdom of the Founding Fathers still intact with Constitution and three branches, Executive, Legislative, and Justice check and balance. The cost of human lives was very high. Population of America at the beginning of the Civil War was about 30 Million. More than 20% died due to war, famine and war related issues in that time period and shortly after.

Yes, indeed as the Greek philosopher has curved in the temple, "memory is the mother of all wisdom".

European Union governming body is more of a confederacy and not a central union as is the Unitied States of America. It evolved via a different culture and political and milltary competition reflecting the experience of both World War I and World War II, when more than 50 million people perished in Europe in those two wars.

But returning to the topic of Pomise of America, it was here in the State of Virginia where America emerged less than three centuries ago. A nation born out of philosophy and unlike nations of Europe, not out of history. Innovation 1776 created the Promise of America.

Such is the inspiration for Sustainable Communities now and beyond Mid-21st Century USA__and elsewhere among Friends of Earth, nation to nation and community to community. .
