Hope is something we do, rather than something we have. Active Hope is about finding, and offering, our best response to the crisis of sustainability unfolding in our world. It offers tools that help us face the mess we’re in, as well as find and play our role in the collective transition, or Great Turning, to a life-sustaining society. Join deep ecologist Joanna Macy as she shares this accessible and deeply useful book for all concerned about justice, sustainability, and peace.
“Books about social and ecological change too often leave out a vital component: how do we change ourselves so that we are strong enough to fully contribute to this great shift? Active Hope fills this gap beautifully, guiding readers on a journey of gratitude, grief, interconnection and, ultimately, transformation.” Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine
