Dreaming the Future

Reimagining Civilization in the Age of Nature

(2012 | Chelsea Green Publishing)

The NEW book by Kenny Ausubel


The world is entering a period of great change. The environment is collapsing. Social disruption abounds. All around, it seems, societies are experiencing breakdown—even collapse.

Out of this chaos, however, comes the opportunity to avoid a complete breakdown and instead foster a breakthrough. It is time, argues award-winning social entrepreneur, author, journalist, and filmmaker Kenny Ausubel, to reimagine our future and our connection to each other, and to nature.

In Dreaming the Future, Ausubel tracks the big ideas, metatrends, and game-changing developments of our time being led by some of the world’s greatest thinkers.


"Without doubt, Kenny Ausubel has one of the most glorious minds on the planet. Herein he has crafted a dazzling treasury of essays on the destiny of humanity and its place on earth, a rosary of startling truths. Read this for its brilliance, but read it also to find joy in the intricate reimagination of what it means to be a human being at this parlous moment in civilization.

~Paul Hawken,

environmentalist, entrepreneur, journalist,

and author

 

Kenny Ausubel is one of the planet’s key people, a kind of hub for the new ideas that will, if we’re smart, shape our future. He delivers them with the brio and confidence that will help people overcome their fear and get to work.”

~Bill McKibben,

environmentalist, author, educator, and journalist
