DeUrbanization! : 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN DeUrbanization! The gradual journey Back to Eden

Slide 2: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden Not talking about Deurbanization and not addressing the reality of saving our planet from urban overpopulation, pollution, and destruction is pointless.

Slide 3: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN First, the definition of “urban” means areas which are based on a combination of certain criteria and drastically varying between governments. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 4: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN #1. Population size, and, 2. population density, and, 3. proportion of labor force engaged in non-agricultural activities, and, 4. administrative status of the locality from census designations, also, 5. Other socio-economic factors. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 5: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN The word, “de⋅ur⋅ban⋅ize” is a verb, used with an object, -ized, or iz⋅ing, meaning to divest a city or locality of urban, or devoid and problematic characteristics. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 6: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN In order to define and distinguish movements and divisions of populations within a given territory, there are four known concepts that have been identified - 'urbanization', 'suburbanization', 'de-urbanization' and 're-urbanization'. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 7: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Urbanization typically occurs in famous scenic spots and in the vicinity of macro engineering works, while de-urbanization is typically implemented in large areas, by governments, to protect the natural environment. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 8: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Over-urbanization has considerable impacts on psychosocial health and the esthetic qualities of many mountain tourist resorts and in some places even destroys the natural state of land-scapes and ecosystems. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 9: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Historically speaking, during initial phase of 'urbanization', there occurs an import of rural traditions into the city centers, whereas during 'de-urbanization', the typology of a settlement at the 'urban' periphery sits in complete contrast to the rural traditions. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 10: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN The Carbon Footprint or the calculation of an individual’s, factory’s, or other entity’s impact on the environment, measured as the total amount of carbon dioxide is one of the considerations for deurbanization in an effective and gradual manner. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 11: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Public health policy, administrative gaps and omissions of governments agencies managing the development of pro-psychosocial health communities, nature parks and world heritage sites are responsible for over-urbanization in the wold’s most lovely areas. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 12: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Deurbanization is a sociocultural reaction to the health related and physical decline in an urban population reacting to many factors with the most notable being, economic or social change. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 13: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN De-urbanization is simply the process of converting such areas or plots of cities where it is overpopulated or congested, such that, it is re-developed and planned towards an upgrading into more realistic agricultural orientated residents or commercial industry. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 14: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Nature like settings and preservation of fertile soils for these new developments are consider as well as the density of population, so there are more available blank areas suitable for the development of ‘green’ businesses. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 15: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Preservation of fertile soil for the new agricultural orientated developments which are suitable for the development of community gardens, lush ecology parks, and wildlife green areas. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 16: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN We can preserve nature, natural habitats of the ecology, and a true society when properly planned for. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 17: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Right now, statistically, people are moving out from overpopulated and congested or polluted major metropolises to smaller cities. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 18: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN But, deurbanization is commonly defined differently from suburbanization because that describes a migration to rural previously uninhabited regions of low population density, not to the outer or surrounding regions of the city as defined by suburbanization. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 19: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN A few of the basic reasons for deurbanization are: 1. industrial changes- companies moving to lower cost areas, 2. developments in transportation and increased car ownership, which means that people can get from place to place more easily,.. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 20: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Also, 3. Technological change-the Internet, people can work from a home in a rural setting. 4. Idealistic views of the idyllic countryside where there are less social problems such as crime, muggings and drugs, queers, niggering, and illegal Mexican stealing, jobs and resources, and 5. Better quality of hygienic living. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 21: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN And, the results of deurbanization, well, most are positive, such as: 1. new employment opportunities and increase business opportunites with industries relocating to outer-laying areas…. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 22: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN ..2. value of houses goes up. But, there are negative too: 1. Housing, industrial and motorway developments around new towns threaten, previous areas of outstanding beauty with their noise, air pollution, and both inadvertant and deliberate water and food contaminawtion. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 23: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN And, psychosocially, 2. Social tensions of 'outsiders' moving into their area contributes to cultural and family distresses. Also, 3. the cost of buying a house goes up too. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 24: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN “Parents flock with their families to the cities, because they fancy it easier to obtain a livelihood there than in the country. The children, obtain a street education.. from evil associates, ..acquire habits of vice and dissipation. The parents see all this, but it will require a sacrifice to correct their error, and they stay where they are, until Satan gains full control of their children,” a woman named Ellen G. White wrote. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 25: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Over 4 billion pounds of toxic chemicals are released by industry into the U.S.A.’s environment each year, including 72 million pounds of recognized carcinogens. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 26: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN “Net-farms,” or small to moderate size condominiums built out in rural vicinities of agricultural areas are shared in ownership where rooms are owned and inhabited by Internet ebusiness operators-this is a viable options for country living too. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 27: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN “Net-farm” condominiums may have many tenets living in one big complex and each working for big Internet ebusiness owners and yet share in country living chores, organic gardening, and the daily tasks of regular country living. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 28: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Animal agriculture takes a devastating toll on the earth. It is an inefficient way of producing food, since feed for farm animals requires land, water, fertilizer, and other resources that could otherwise have been used directly for producing human food in a deurbanized community. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 29: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN The United Nations has reported that a vegan diet can feed many more people than an animal-based diet. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 30: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Experts believe that the use of composting toilets by all people in throughout the world will substantially help the country living experience and the ecology and improve living conditions now and in the future. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 31: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN And a new lifestyle, for example, the use of solar, hydro-, and wind energy power sources that provide for a clean daily life and a healthy and living is viable. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 32: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN And driving several miles to a big supermarket will of course also present problems, since few people may have those hygienic and affordable cars. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 33: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Many people will want to grow their own food, or at least be close to community agriculture cooperatives where food is readily available at decent prices. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 34: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN This will mean a massive flight out into the country, as cities become more and more congested, polluted, and expensive to maintain. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 35: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN All countries could conceivably be facing mass exoduses at some point in time. The first major causality of high oil prices will be the car. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 36: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN The new hybrid cars, hygienic operated automobiles, and clean air vehicles are very expensive even at this time. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 37: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN But the gas/diesel powered truck can't be far behind. In any case, transporting food will become increasingly expensive. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 38: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN Institutions with sufficient authority must be set up to legally supervise and protect community gardens, green parks, and heritage sites in mountains for the benefit of the entire world. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 39: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN You see, deurbanization is learning about living a lifestyle with clean air, clean water, and safe, health conscious solutions for your family,  pets,  homes, cars,  the environment and subsequently, the planet! The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 40: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN “Instead of the crowded city, seek some retired situation where your children will be, so far as possible, shielded from temptation, and there train and educate them for usefulness,” this wonderful woman Ellen G. White wrote so inspirationally. The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden

Slide 41: 

The Gradual Journey: BACK TO EDEN …as it is written, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him.” I Corinthians 2:9 The Gradual Journey- Back to Eden
