Edens Lost and Found highlights what communities all across the country are doing to revive their ecosystems and, as a result, improve the quality of life of all its citizens. Award-winning filmmakers Harry Wiland and Dale Bell herald an exciting sea change in the reltionship between ordinary citzens, environmental groups, and local government. This PBS special series witnesses and records a new spirit of cooperation among neighbors, planners, architects and builders, city officials, and government agencies. Former Washington Governor Gary Locke hosts the Seattle segment of Edens Lost and Found. "In every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations." - The Iroquois Confederacy. From its history as home to the Salmon people who kept their ecosystem in careful balance to protect the future, to its present status as one of the fastest growing regions in the country, Seattle is walking a fine line. Can a "seventh generation" mindset become a value once more in a place that is so popular that people are flocking here and literally loving it to death? The Seattle segment of Edens Lost and Found illustrates that Seattle residents are buying into the "modern" philosophy and practice of sustainability. Developers are taking care to conserve storm water on site for use during the dry season. Seattle is taking alternative fuels seriously: it has the largest population of personal biodiesel users in the nation. Solar power, low-emissive glass, recycled and sustainable materials, green roofs -- these are becoming the "must-have" standards of the construction industry, and a clear statement that corporations value the environment enough to invest in it.
