about this book

Global warming, energy shortages, overpopulation – it’s no wonder that as a society, we’re in an apocalyptic mood. Out of an endless stream of gloomy prognoses for humanity’s future, we have emerged with little inspiration and few concrete ideas for change. Our Way Out is the first time that our most urgent global challenges have been treated as aspects of a single, larger crisis – and the first to acknowledge that while crises reinforce each other, solutions enable each other. The transformation to sustainability is already happening, in many small ways, in many parts of the world. Our Way Out shows us how we can scale up these efforts to create meaningful and lasting change.

This is not a book on climate change, energy, or any other single issue – it is the story of how within the solutions to the global crises we face, lay the seeds of something greater. It is a handbook for immense and exciting worldwide change. And, not least of all, it offers us robust hope that we can make things better.
