Building a Just and Sustainable World September 2009
September marks back-to-school time for many households, but even if it's been years since you saw the inside of a classroom, you'll learn something from the fall issue of YES!
Learn as You Go, our focus on education, features a piece by former teacher and school-reform advocate John Taylor Gatto, who believes thinking for yourself and exploring the world are far more important than classroom lessons and standardized tests. Check out our poster and chart your own course.
That spirit of adventure drove the planning behind this issue: What do we really need to know to be active, engaged citizens, to understand and appreciate our communities, to weather the challenges of a changing world?
Chances are, you won't find those answers in a textbook. But they're out there, and this issue of YES! will help you find them. If you’re not already a subscriber, make Learn as You Go the first issue in your subscription with this special introductory $15 offer.

Stunt or Not a Stunt? That's NOT the Question
Climate change requires action on many levels, personal as well as political. We shouldn't be distracted by attacking each others' methods—only if we adopt a single agenda can we hope for change in the very little time we have to effect it.
