Just prior to periods of great migration, certain species display agitation and restlessness - a phenomenon referred to by scientists as ‘zugunruhe’. McLennan identifies a similar pattern emerging among people yearning for a sustainable future. This book is intended as a catalyst for anyone interested in exploring a deeper, more meaningful connection to the environmental movement. “Zugunruhe is a work of creative genius that draws us into an engaging journey of self-discovery, brings the biggest and most frightening issues of our time up close, and invites our engagement,” notes David Korten, “It will leave you envisioning human possibilities you never previously imagined.” Profound, personal and practical, McLennan’s narrative reminds us that individual efforts ripple outward and can lead to revolutionary change for the betterment of people and planet.

The authors are recognized as national experts in the design of hospitals and other health care facilities that are 'sustainable.' Both authors are engaged in the development of the Green Guide for Health Care 2.0 Pilot ( that launched in late 2004. A new rating system and policy, LEED Application Guide for Healthcare (LEED-HC), using the Green Guide as its foundation, is scheduled for release by USGBC in late 2006 and both authors are active in its development. This book will build upon the authors' combined expertise and will be considered THE guide to learning about sustainable practices for healthcare and LEED-HC. It will include LEED-HC information and guidelines, as well as case studies of the best projects and contributed essays by acknowledged experts on topics related to sustainable design for healthcare. Importantly, an increasing number of hospitals and other health care facility building projects are required to be sustainable in some way, especially if the project is receiving government funding.
