AEL’s Housing Now project aims to illustrate effective affordable/achievable housing and myth bust common assumptions about its feasibility locally.
The types of houses we live in determine our individual environmental impact. When we add up everyone’s impact, we get tremendous degradation of habitat, natural resources, and air quality. If we advocate for house types that are gentler on the environment at the policy level, we can help curb the negative externalities. It also happens that we end up with more achievable housing and desirable, walkable neighborhoods. We see this as a win-win.
