The world is entering a period of great change. The environment is collapsing. Social disruption abounds. All around, it seems, societies are experiencing breakdown.
Out of this chaos, however, comes the opportunity to reimagine our future, our connection to each other, and to nature, argues award-winning social entrepreneur, author, journalist, and filmmaker Kenny Ausubel.
Along with his partner and wife, Nina Simons, Ausubel founded Bioneers -an organization that foreword author David W. Orr describes as "one part global salon between like- minded but otherwise isolated visionaries and practitioners at the forefront of civilizational change, and one part catalytic organization that takes the conversation that takes the conversations up to a higher level and down to Main Street."
In Dreaming The Future, Ausubel shows how it's possible to emerge from a world where corporations are citizens, the gap between rich and poor is cavernous, and biodiversity and the climate are under assault -and create a world where people take their cues from nature and focus on justice, equity, diversity, democracy, and peace.
"Without doubt, Kenny Ausubel has one of the most glorious minds on the planet. Herein he has crafted a dazzling treasury of essays on the destiny of humanity and its place on earth, a rosary of starling truths. Read this for its means to be a human beings at this parlous moment in civilization." -Paul Hawken, Author of Blessed Unrest.
