Ecotopia is the name given to an area of land that consists of Northern California, Oregon, and Washington. Ecotopia managed to succeed from the United States and carried with it, a promise of being self-sufficient in all acts of life. Ecotopia cut off relations with the United States but continued trade with a few other small nations but only on the Ecotopia’s terms. William Weston is a journalist sent from the United States, on a diplomatic mission, to hopefully bring the nations closer together so that one day it might be possible for the two nations to work together in some kind of capacity or another. During Weston’s month stay in Ecotopia, he records his interactions and other thoughts about Ecotopian society in his journal. Periodically, Weston sends stories back to his editor to keep him up to speed with Weston’s daily adventures. In this report I will mainly focus on three differences between Ecotopia and the United states. The three areas of interest I will discuss are the differences in environmental sustainment, schools, and Prisons. Both the United States and Ecotopia handle these three issues very differently. So differently in fact, that most would be shocked at the level Ecotopia goes to, to achieve a self-sufficient, sustainable society.Ecotopia is the name given to an area of land that consists of Northern California, Oregon, and Washington.
