Every fifteen seconds on our Earth, a child dies from waterborne disease. Three times an hour, another species becomes extinct. Each day we consume eighty-five million barrels of oil and pump twenty-three million tons of carbon dioxide into an already warming atmosphere. But against this bleak backdrop, beacons of hope shine from thousands of large and small initiatives taking place everywhere from isolated villages to major urban centers. Thriving Beyond Sustainability draws a collective map of individuals, organizations, and communities from around the world that are committed to building an alternative future--one that strives to restore ecological health; reinvent outmoded institutions; and rejuvenate our environmental, social, and economic systems. The projects and initiatives profiled are meeting the challenges of the day with optimism, hope, and results, leading the way in: Relocalization Green commerce Ecological design Environmental conservation Social transformation Overflowing with inspiration, the stories and ideas in these pages will cause the most chronic pessimist to see the glass as half full--to move beyond a perception of surviving with scarcity to one of flourishing with abundance. The comprehensive resource section provides the tools for everyone to become a catalyst for change. Andres R. Edwards is the author of The Sustainability Revolution, which has sold over twenty thousand copies. He is an educator, media designer, LEED-accredited green building and sustainability consultant, and the founder of EduTracks, a firm specializing in developing education programs and providing consulting services on sustainable practices.

It's all about celebrating the togetherness and energising the positive vibrations of planetary oneness. Apparently sustainability doesn't involve any engineering, it's all running on Kumbaya songs. You can probably tell: I was disappointed with the direction the book chose to show the issue from. ( )

A great companion book to Blessed Unrest, it discusses what is being done - and what you an do - to get involved in going beyond merely sustaining to finding new ways to live in this world. I wish they had had even more how-to, and plan to look at the extensive resource list in more detail. It is also too bad that Edwards started with the indigenous cultures section, because although it is a good chapter on an important idea, he might lose some people who think of it as too touchy-feely.

We do not need magic to change the world, we carry all the power we need inside ourselves already: we have the power to imagine better  - J.K. Rowling, qtd p 1
We can no longer import our lives in the form of food, fuel, and fundamentalism. Live is homegrown, always has been. So is culture, and so too are the solutions to global problems. - Paul Hawken, qpt p 25
As author and environmentalist Bill McKibben mentions, a good first step in the journey toward sustainability is to bake cookies, take them to your neighbors and get to know each other. Within this context, new working relationships with neighbors, government officials and business leaders emerge and changes at the local level begin to take shape. The glocal approach first builds personal relationships at the neighborhood level and then ties in connections to global issues. p 32
Recalibrating our economic system so that it more accurately reflects the true costs of resource extraction and natural processes is the beginning of a new approach to ecological economics in which human activities that regenerate natural systems will be rewarded, laying the foundation for a thriveable future. p 106.
Using the SPIRALS approach as a compass, thriveable projects, which are Scalable, Place-making, Intergenerational, Resilient, Accessible, Life-affirming, and involve Self-care, can be created and implemented. p 151
