Synopses & Reviews
Two world-renowned global activists explore the rise of grassroots globalists--citizens all over the world who are taking responsibility to build a more peaceful harmonious, and sustainable future--in this wide-ranging dialogue. They discuss their own backgrounds and what led them individually to activism on a worldwide scale. At the same time, they provide encouragement and concrete information for the millions of other concerned citizens who want to make a difference. A wide variety of issues that are now gaining greater recognition at all levels of society are explored, including sustainable development, economic justice, respect for indigenous peoples and their traditional lands and resources, democratizing politics and international institutions, making corporations accountable, and conserving the Earth's bio-diversity, water, air quality, and climate.
