Communities with a Common Goal
More than a decade ago, the authors of The Ecology of Hope visited nine communities across the United States to meet residents who were working collaboratively towards sustainability.
In Hope and Hard Times, Ted Bernard revisits the passionate visionaries he met on his earlier journey. He discovers that while the road they have travelled has not always been smooth, through their success and failures they embody "a radical hope" – a hope that a better world is possible and that we will be the ones to build it .
A World of Solutions at Your Fingertips
Solutions are everywhere. Hundreds of magazines and thousands of websites promise the cure for what ails our world. Every "green" retailer offers a new product to help us buy our way out of our planet’s predicament. So much advice – so little information.
The Sustainable World Source Book helps cut through the overload, and is packed with information, resources and actions to promote sustainability at the global, community and personal level. This richly illustrated, beautifully designed, full-color manual is the essential guidebook for every concerned citizen.
