Edens Lost & Found

This four-hour PBS series showcases extraordinary stories of environmental rebirth in four very different American cities.


Each one-hour program examines the unique environmental, economic and social issues that each of these great cities face. Interviews with citizen activists, politicians, urban planners, and urbanites reveal how passion combined with innovative strategies can address the widespread problems facing many of America’s urban environments today. While these citizen activitists and politicians come from different parts of the U.S. they share a common approach. It’s called Sustainable Development.
