... and where will the children play?
How do you make the future livable? In Vancouver, population one million, up to five million by 2025, housing land will run out by the year 2000. In Boulder, Colorado, the population has so mushroomed that people can enter some recreation areas by permit only. Alarmed for the future the citizens have cried: ' stop!' Stop economic and population growth and reallocate resources to improve our quality of life.
But how? Will people give up their demand for more consumer goods? Will they voluntarily limit their personal freedoms? This film shows the unique attempt by two cities to solve their growth problems. Do we, in this country, care sufficiently about the future to learn from their example? Narrator PAUL VAUGHAN
