Descrizione

Every 15 seconds on our Earth Island, a child dies from waterborne disease. Three times an hour, another species becomes extinct. Each day we consume 85 million barrels of oil and pump 23 million tons of carbon dioxide into an already warming atmosphere. But against this bleak backdrop, beacons of hope shine from thousands of large and small initiatives taking place everywhere from isolated villages to major urban centers.

Thriving Beyond Sustainability draws a collective map of individuals, organizations and communities from around the world that are committed to building an alternative future - one that strives to restore ecological health, reinvent outmoded institutions and rejuvenate our environmental, social and economic systems. the projects and initiatives profiled are meeting the challenges of the day with optimism, hope and results, leading the way in:

- relocalization
- green commerce
- ecological design
- environmental conservation
- social transformation.

Overflowing with inspiration, the stories and ideas in these pages will cause the most chronic pessimist to see the glass as half full - to move beyond a perception of surviving with scarcity to one of flourishing with abundance. the comprehensive resource section provides the tools for everyone to become a catalyst for change.

  • (5/5)
    A great companion book to Blessed Unrest, it discusses what is being done - and what you an do - to get involved in going beyond merely sustaining to finding new ways to live in this world. I wish they had had even more how-to, and plan to look at the extensive resource list in more detail. It is also too bad that Edwards started with the indigenous cultures section, because although it is a good chapter on an important idea, he might lose some people who think of it as too touchy-feely.

    I haven't finished the book, large parts of it sound like compiled mission statements of dozens govermental agencies, NGOs or private company projects. Without any critique, without confirmation from another source that what they are doing works. I'd prefer if the book covered less examples in more depth.
