SUMMARY

Back cover copy for Earthfuture (Outside dimensions: 5.5? x 8.5?; spine width: 0.514?) US.95 / CAN.95 Future Studies / Literature / Environment IF WE CAN VISUALIZE A PARADISE ON EARTH, WE CAN CREATE ONE! Imagine a future in which people had successfully come to terms with each other and with our spaceship home, where we used only as many resources as would regenerate in a given year, and where we were actually restoring the Earth's bounty? Set in the early years of the new millennium, Earthfuture describes a world of ecovillages and self-organizing city neighborhoods, of near-zero garbage and climate-friendly cars, of work-sharing and social investment, of neighborhood democracy and the syntropy revolution, of a world-wide sustainable trade and environment treaty, and the Earth Pledge. In short, a world where wealth is defined by peace, a healthy environment, and the high quality of our relationships. At the same time, it is not, of course, a world without its nightmares - such as antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and genetic pollution - nor is it free from difficult choices. But, with its mix of utopian fiction and reportage of near-reality, Earthfuture sows the seeds of an alternative future with such obvious delight that today's fear and loss of hope are allayed, the doom and gloom replaced by optimism. Perhaps such ingredients are all it takes to build the sustainable world we would like. *** ?Around the world today, there is a blossoming of initiative, creativity and personal commitment by people who have the determination to make this world a better place. The skills and the experience, we pick up along the way. It is these people who are the role-models for my stories ? Almost all of the initiatives described in the stories are already happening. They are a celebration of the present, projected into the future.' - from the Preface *** Earthfuture is for all who dare to imagine. Guy Dauncey is a futurist, a sustainable communities consultant, and speaker. An award-winning author of nine previous books, he lives in Victoria, British Columbia.
