About this product
- DescriptionHuman civilization faces more challenges than ever before. Unless urgent action is taken, there will soon be biting shortages of energy, food and fresh water. Climate change also demands our attention, while conventional ecomic decision making and mass consumerism are leading us to ruin. The time has therefore come to fix the world. This book is for everybody who wants to help shape a better future. Its chapters cover the interrelated topics of more local living, low energy lifestyles, dematerialization, design for repair, crowdsourcing, more women in authority, and the death of ecomics. Within a decade, all of these will be common cultural or business practice. Seven Ways to Fix the World therefore provides you with the opportunity to understand the rising agendas of tomorrow, and to help make a difference by getting ahead of the curve.
