Or to put the claim of this inspiring video in positive terms, the greatest solution to our environmental crisis is sharing. But let's not forget the positive impact on health and happiness. "Built to Last" was a winner of the Congress of New Urbanism's (CNU) 2009 video contest. What CNU says about new urbanism puts sharing at the center of their vision:

New Urbanism makes shared space the organizing element of a community. Architecture physically defines streets as places of shared use. Care for the public realm adds character, builds value, promotes security, and helps residents feel proud of their community. Plazas, squares, sidewalks, cafes, and porches provide rich settings for interaction and public life.
