Explores the type of politics that can enable us to achieve a sustainable world of our choice, rather than one imposed by external forces, offering an in-depth examination of the elements of a re-energized political system that could lead to the development of more sustainable communities and a politics of engagement, rather than consignment, which empowers citizens by directly involving them in community decision making.


Aiming for genotopia; the minimum technical requirements for sustainability; prelude to politics; engaging politics; the once and future democracy.
