Worldchanging : A User's Guide for the 21st Century
Five years after the initial publication of Worldchanging, the landscape of environmentalism and sustainability has changed dramatically. The average reader is now well-versed-and sometimes inundated-with green lifestyle advice. Buying organic is old news for those who are watching urban farms sprout up in their neighborhoods. Recycling seems quaint when the buzz is about creating zero waste societies. In 2011, green is the starting point, not the destination. This second edition of the bestselling book is extensively revised to include the latest trends and statistics. More than 160 new entries include up-to-the-minute information on the locavore movement, carbon-neutral homes, novel transportation solutions, the growing trend of eco-tourism, the concept of food justice, and much more. Additional new sections focus on the role of cities as the catalyst for change in our society. With 50% new material, this edition incorporates the most recent studies and projects being implemented worldwide. The end result is a guided tour through the most exciting new tools, models, and ideas for building a better future.
