Description


Environmental and human catastrophe looms ever larger for planet Earth. From the need to build sustainable cities to house growing billions to transforming the international trade system to tackling run-away climate change, positive, powerful action is needed now to turn a deepening global crisis into an opportunity for change.

This book, the first major output by leading lights from the World Future Council (WFC), a new international lobby for future generations, seeks nothing less than a complete transformation of how humans relate to the world and one another.

Herbert Girardet is Director of Programs of the World Future Council. He is an author and co-author of ten books and 50 TV documentaries on sustainable development. At the Rio Earth Summit he received a UN Global 500 Award. His most recent books are Cities, People, Planet Liveable Cities for a Sustainable World (2004), and Shaping our Future (2005).
