An incredibly interactive book designed to allow, indeed empower, individuals to effect change. Based on the idea that it’s not enough to wait around for policy and top down decision making to dictate issues concerning sustainability and our future, instead that enabling individuals to contribute in a staggering number of ways is far for the better. From consumer consciousness to a new vision for industry; non-toxic homes to refugee shelters; microfinance to effective philanthropy; socially responsible investing to starting a green business; citizen media to human rights; ecological economics to climate change, this is the most comprehensive, cutting-edge overview to date of what’s possible in the near future — if we decide to make it so.
