Stories of the Great Turning ~ a book that I’m contributing to

Buddhist scholar and eco-activist Joanna Macy argues that Western culture is going through a Great Turning, from the industrial growth society to a life-sustaining civilisation.

Stories of the Great Turning is a collection of stories of how individuals and groups are contributing to this revolution (edited by Peter Reason & Melanie Newman).

I’m contributing a chapter to this book based on the ‘idea’ that I’ve seen emerge in the people I work with: “I don’t want to be a passenger. I want to author my own life, and co-author the world around me.” Imagine if this idea was allowed to root in the bellies of young people today.
