We just got a super sneak preview of the next season of “Design:e2: The Economies of Being Environmentally Conscious,” the sustainable design series that premiered on PBS last summer. While you can still catch the first season in reruns, the folks at kontent>real are knee deep in production on part II of the design series–which will premiere this fall–and the energy series, to follow after that. A few choice tidbits:

-California’s energy plan as a global example

-A super-sustainable community in Bangladesh

-The wind farms of Buffalo Ridge, Minnesota

-Enrique Penalosa‘s work in Bogota

-The Druk White Lotus school in India

-Ed Mazria‘s architecture2030

We also got our hands on the DVD of the first season, which you can buy, too, and it’s a gorgeous green world populated with high-profile friends of the environment like William McDonough, Susan Szenasy, Sergio Palleroni, and more. We also plan on listening to Brad Pitt‘s dreamy voiceover again and again…perhaps as we drift to sleep every night.
