“Ezeilo artfully articulates the obscured problem of racism in the country’s environmental movement and unapologetically sets forth solutions.” —Elaine Brown, author of A Taste of Power Revealing the deep and abiding interest that African American, Latino, and Native American communities—many of whom live in degraded and polluted parts of the country—have in our collective environment, Engage, Connect, Protect is part eye-opening critique of the cultural divide in environmentalism, part biography of a leading social entrepreneur, and part practical toolkit for engaging diverse youth. It covers: Why communities of color are largely unrecognized in the environmental movementHow to bridge the cultural divide and activate a new generation of environmental stewardsA curriculum for engaging diverse youth and young adults through culturally appropriate methods and activitiesResources for connecting mainstream America to organizations working with diverse youth within environmental projects, training, and employment Engage, Connect, Protect is a wake-up call for businesses, activists, educators, and policymakers to recognize the work of grassroots activists in diverse communities and create opportunities for engaging with diverse youth as the next generation of environmental stewards, while the concern about the state of our land, air, and water continues to grow.“An accessible guide to respond to the inequities faced by persons of color marginalized by mainstream environmentalism.” —Dianne D.

  • Rethinking Money - How New Currencies Turn Scarcity into Prosperity - cover

    Rethinking Money - How New...

    This study reveals how our monetary system reinforces scarcity, and how communities are already using new paradigms to foster sustainable prosperity. 
     
    In the United States and across Europe, our economies are stuck in an agonizing cycle of repeated financial meltdowns. Yet solutions already exist, not only our recurring fiscal crises but our ongoing social and ecological debacles as well. These changes came about not through increased conventional taxation, enlightened self-interest, or government programs, but by people simply rethinking the concept of money. 
     
    In Rethinking Money, Bernard Lietaer and Jacqui Dunne explore the origins of our current monetary system—built on bank debt and scarcity—revealing how its limitations give rise to so many serious problems. The authors then present stories of ordinary people and communities using new money, working in cooperation with national currencies, to strengthen local economies, create work, beautify cities, provide education, and more. These real-world examples are just the tip of the iceberg—over four thousand cooperative currencies are already in existence. 
     
    The book provides remedies for challenges faced by governments, businesses, nonprofits, local communities, and even banks. It demystifies a complex and critically important topic and offers meaningful solutions that will do far more than restore prosperity—it will provide the framework for an era of sustainable abundance.
