Author(s): Stefan Sagmeister et al

Natural History and Environment

Written by a collaborative of leading thinkers across a diverse range of industries, World Changing demonstrates that the means for building a better future lie all around us. Filled with information, resources, reviews and ideas, World Changing gives readers access to the tools they need to make a difference. This team of top-notch writers, brought together by 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?
Illustrated with colour photographs throughout and designed by Stefan Sagmeister, one of the most influential graphic designers working today, World Changing proves that a life that is sustainable, prosperous, thoughtful and democratic, dynamic and peaceful, is not just possible, it's here.
