    People who have told us why they are not NIMBYs on twitter…

    @ccofaug We wouldn’t want to see #unconventionalgas drilling (#coalbedmethane or #fracking) in anyone’s backyard! #noriskygas #notanimby

    @MRAPP2012 more important than 1 man’s profit is the legacy you leave. My backyard is important to more than just me.

    Tell us what you would say if you were in our film!

  2. I have just recently learnt about this abbreviation but wish to share my views. My thoughts are drawn from my basic knowledge of being human, my love for architecture and for the betterment of the world.

    I see the term NIMBY being a prejudice that only generates discord and tension in the hearts of the members of the community. It goes against any ideas of place-making and community spirit and will certainly discourage any member of the community from trusting and respecting those individuals who make use of it.

    Thank you for sharing this video, it holds a powerful message that needs to be recognised.

    I am not a NIMBY, I am an architecture student who genuinely wants communities around the world to be revived and refreshed by something deeper and more meaningful than anything the material world alone can possibly offer.

    I am not a NIMBY, but feel strongly that I should have equal rights with developers who do NOT live in , or share my backyard!
