Overview

Elegant and audacious possibilities that push the boundaries of contemporary environmentalism

Dysfunctional cities, catastrophic climate change, ever-deepening distance from nature-today we see environmental disaster everywhere we look. In Mobilizing the Green Imagination , philosophical provocateur Anthony Weston urges us to move beyond ever more desperate attempts to "green" the status quo, toward entirely different and far more inviting ecological visions:

  • Life after transportation-decentralized work, inventive infill and self-sufficient micro-communities to facilitate life in place
  • Adaptation with attitude-cities that welcome the rising waters
  • A Great Second Chance-moving beyond exploitation of the whole natural world
  • A cosmic ecology-why not a green space program?

These postcards from beyond the leading edge of today's green thinking are bold, audacious, extravagantly hopeful and profoundly inspiring-the perfect antidote to the despair brought on by too many "doom and gloom" scenarios. Nothing less than a complete reinvention of contemporary environmentalism, Mobilizing the Green Imagination belongs in the back pocket of anyone who dares to dream of a brighter future and a better world.
