Living Green is more than just a new public television series from WUFT-TV/DT, it reflects a new way of life for the 21st century. Living Green focuses on how communities incorporate environmental concerns into their homes and neighborhoods to help preserve natural resources for future generations. Each episode, hosted by Dr. Mark Hostetler, a University of Florida Associate Professor of Wildlife Ecology and Conservation, incorporates an upbeat and humorous approach to the myriad of challenges and solutions associated with environmental issues. Specific attention is paid to the solutions to growth/environmental challenges, and the opportunities for individuals, developers, and counties to search for "win-win" strategies that balance socioeconomic and environmental concerns in the own community.
