The Celestia Project

Imagine a hopeful future. The world's pressing environmental issues have been solved. Ecosystems are stabilizing. Fresh water is once more clean and bountiful. Through a combination of ethical technology and good intentions, human beings have made a major course correction. Life is good. This is The Celestia Project. Divided into 11 chapters, this epic look at an idealized "green" future will be unveiled month by month through February 2015. Each chapter will include notes and analysis from Green Builder staff about current trends, products, and events. We realize that predicting the future is an imperfect science but these are our best guess scenarios of how a greener, more sustainable future might unfold. Visit The Celestia Project site for a media kit detailing the editorial coverage, downloadables, videos, infographics, and more. You can also sign up to have each installment of The Celestia Project delivered monthly to your email.
