e2 3 Pack DVD This is part of the Jetson Green birthday giveaway, so make sure to leave a comment by midnight Friday, July 25, 2008, if you want to be considered for the contest.*

We’ve blogged about e² previously because the video series is so absolutely compelling.  You can catch previews of the show at the e² series website, view episodes at Hulu, and buy episodes at iTunes.  With the Brad Pitt-narrated, design season three in production and available for viewing from September 1, 2008, we can expect more incredible information in this delicious video format.  While you’re waiting for the next installment, why not catch up on what’s already been produced?  The critically acclaimed series envisions a better quality of life on earth and explores attainable solutions in a variety of fields: design, energy, transport, water, food, and urban development.  This three pack promotional DVD giveaway is made possible through the generosity of Kontentreal

DVD Description:
"e2: design season one and two examine the economies of being environmentally conscious in green building design of sustainable architecture.  e2: Energy features people, places and innovations that suggest that a more environmentally benign future is possible and within reach.  Equal parts visual style and storytelling acumen, each episode stands alone while contributing to the larger dialogue the e2 series is intended to promote."

Design Season One includes: The Green Apple, Green for All, The Green Machine, Gray to Green, China: From Red to Green, and Deeper Shades of Green.  Design Season Two includes:  The Druk White Lotus School – Ladakh, Greening the Federal Government, Bogota: Building a Sustainable City, Affordable Green Housing, Adaptive Reuse in the Netherlands, and Architecture 2030.  Energy includes: Harvesting the Wind, Energy for a Developing World, Paving the Way, Growing Energy, State of Resolve, and Coal & Nuclear: Problem or Solution. 

How to Purchase (if you don’t win):

    Happy 2nd!

    I’m an engineering student on a budget and would love this series (they don’t have it on netflix and I don’t have cable)

    My life goal is to be a green building designer and this summer I am writing a proposal to have my college build us a net Zero-Energy Home that we can design and study. So this series could really help.

    l love your blog. Of all the Green blogging sites I have found, this has been the most helpful. I start every day by checking your site looking for inspiration for my work.
