Building a Just and Sustainable World November/December 2007
In Liberate Your Space, the new issue of YES! Magazine, you'll meet people who, whether through necessity or desire, are living free. They’re not waiting for permission, instruction, or help. They’re defining the world they’d like to live in, and creating it where they are.
You'll find people who are claiming the space to make street music, to farm in the city, to turn parking spaces into parks, and to shelter the homeless. Our Handy How-To Guide opens up ideas you may not have thought of, from guerrilla gardening to sources of free stuff.
The upshot: you don’t have to dream about the life you want. Just start living it!

Tell Us What You Think :: How to get to Carbon Neutral
The Spring 2008 issue of YES! Magazine will investigate what it will take to keep greenhouse gas levels low enough to prevent the worst-case scenarios. We think a carbon-neutral world is not only possible, but that it will be more human-scale, community-centered, just, and enjoyable.
We also know that the impetus for change will come, not from politicians, but from all of us who take steps to reduce our own carbon footprint, and who press political, business, and religious leaders to get serious about averting climate catastrophe.
Help us think about this issue by sharing with us:
