Responding to the threats of climate change, peak oil, resource depletion, economic uncertainty and energy insecurity demands the utmost in creativity, ingenuity and new ways of thinking in order to reinvent both self and society.

Um livro que recoloca os conceitos tão simples como ser verde, sustentabilidade, ecologista; um guia muito prático, intenso em ideias-chave, redes de conceitos, reflexões, numa multitude de meios, num esforço formidável de educação, treino, accurancy e preparação para uma cidadania mais justa e (forçosamente muito) exigente para 2010 e nos próximos anos.
