Building a Just and Sustainable World June 2009
Whether it was divine providence or just good luck, we should give thanks that financial collapse hit us before the worst of global warming and peak oil.
As challenging as the economic meltdown may be, it lays bare the failure of a financial system that has brought us to the brink of an even more devastating social and environmental collapse.
This wake-up call is inspiring unprecedented numbers of people to take action to bring forth the culture and institutions of a new economy that can serve us and sustain our living planet for generations into the future. This issue of YES! introduces you to their most exciting projects.
I'm proud to be board chair of YES! and this issue is close to my heart. If you’re not already a subscriber, this is the perfect time to join the YES! community.
