About this book

Written by a collaborative of leading thinkers across a diverse range of industries, "Worldchanging" demonstrates that the means for building a better future lie all around us. Filled with information, resources, reviews and ideas, "Worldchanging" gives readers access to the tools they need to make a difference.

This team of top-notch writers, brought together by Worldchanging.com founder Alex Steffen, includes Cameron Sinclair, founder of Architecture for Humanity; GeekCore founder Ethan Zuckerman and sustainable food expert Anna Lappe, among many others. Each chapter offers practical answers to important questions, such as: Why does buying locally produced food make sense? What steps can we take to influence our workplace toward sustainability? How do we volunteer and advocate more effectively? How can we travel, live, work and learn in worldchanging ways? And how, in short, can every human being help build a better future locally and globally?

This second edition of the bestselling book is extensively revised to include the latest trends, technologies, and solutions in sustainable living. More than 160 new entries include up-to-the-minute information on the locavore movement, carbon-neutral homes, novel transportation solutions, the growing trend of ecotourism, the concept of food justice, and much more. Additional new sections focus on the role of cities as the catalyst for change in our society.
