17Apr2013: Stories of the Great Turning

Stories of the Great Turning

Edited by Peter Reason and Melanie Newman

In the foreword Joanna Macy describes the Great Turning towards a more sustainable society as “the essential adventure of our times.”

Stories of the Great Turning is a book of stories written by 21 people who decided to act, in their own lives, in response to the challenges of our time, and found their own way to make a difference. They are not stories about celebrities or gurus of the environmental movement but honest accounts from people who share a concern for the world we live in and who, in the words of one of the contributors, “just got on with it".

Here are tales about the transformation of wasteland and the installation of water power, stories about reducing consumption and creating sustainable business, stories from people changing how they live their lives and the inner transformations this demands. Alongside the written contributions are eleven artists' responses to the same questions.

“A treasure trove of transformative tales told by grass roots activists.”
Satish Kumar, Editor, Resurgence and The Ecologist

Wednesday April 17th
from 6.30 to 8.30pm
