Forlagets beskrivelse

ELEGANT AND AUDACIOUS POSSIBILITIES
THAT PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF CONTEMPORARY ENVIRONMENTALISM

Weston's "Mobilizing the Green Imagination" stands to become a critical component of the spectrum of ecological perspectives that signal the next stage of our collaborative evolution. -- David McConville, President, The Buckminster Fuller Institute

The perfect antidote to pessimistic "gloom and doom" scenarios, Mobilizing the Green Imagination invites us to radically remake environmentalism from the inside out. 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 including:

  • Adaptation with attitude - cities that welcome the rising waters
  • Life after transportation - decentralized work, inventive infill and self-sufficient micro-communities to facilitate life in place
  • 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. 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.

    A refreshing perspective for reinventing a livable future... Weston invites us to think "outside the box" and re-connect with what has meaning and purpose. -- Andres R. Edwards, author of Thriving Beyond Sustainability and The Sustainability Revolution

    Weston advocates a burst of extravagant thinking with the goal of truly transforming the relationship between person and planet. -- Christopher Preston, author of Saving Creation and Grounding Knowledge

    Anthony Weston is Professor of Philosophy and Environmental Studies at Elon University in North Carolina, where he teaches Ethics, Environmental Studies, and "Millennial Imagination." He is author of twelve other books, including How to Re-Imagine the World and Back to Earth, as well as many articles on ethics, critical thinking, education and contemporary culture.
