Edens Lost & Found highlights practical solutions and models for urban transformation that go beyond pollution prevention to tackle the challenge of improving the quality of life in cities for ourselves and future generations.

Focusing on Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and Seattle -- four cities that face a range of demographic, economic and environmental challenges -- this special documentary series shows how integrated resource planning combined with local community support have come together with bold strategies offering hope to our great American cities.

Many of the problems these cities are confronting pose similar challenges to other metropolitan areas -- of all sizes -- across America. And there is much to be learned from the solutions they are finding.

Showcasing strategies that contribute to a sustainable ecosystem -- including open space and public parks, urban forestry, watershed management, public art, waste disposal, recycling, green architecture, environmental justice, neighborhood development, and mass transit alternatives -- Edens Lost & Found presents the integrated "best practices" that are making a significant difference in these four cities.
