Living Democracy: An ecological manifesto for the end of the world as we know it

An ecological manifesto for the end of the world as we know it

Tim Hollo

Extinction is in the air. There’s a mounting sense of desperation in the face of ecological crises, gaping economic inequality and racial injustice, and a post-truth in politics that’s divorced from reality.

But what if it were possible for us to not just survive, but thrive, in the 21st century? What if the solutions to our ecological, social and political crises could all be found in the same approach?

In Living Democracy Greens activist Tim Hollo offers bold ideas and a positive vision for the future. While it might be the end of the world as we know it, it doesn’t have to be the end of the world. In fact, around the globe, people and communities are beginning a whole new journey.

Whether you’re a concerned community member, or someone who is already active in social or environmental campaigning, this book will inspire and inform you, and get you fired up to co-create a common, more equitable future. A living democracy. Hollo presents lessons for communities, organisations, political parties and individuals, and a recipe for combining all these ingredients into transformative collective action.
