In this session on November 15, we will discuss Chapters 8 & 9.

Active Hope is about finding, and offering, our best response to the crisis of sustainability unfolding in our world. It offers tools that help us face the mess were in, as well as find and play our role in the collective transition, or Great Turning, to a life-sustaining society.

Books about social and ecological change
too often leave out a vital component:
how do we change ourselves
so that we are strong enough
to fully contribute to this great shift?
Active Hope fills this gap beautifully,
guiding readers on a journey of gratitude, grief,
interconnection and, ultimately, transformation.
- Naomi Klein, author of The Shock Doctrine.


At the heart of this book is the idea that Active Hope is something we do rather than have. It involves being clear what we hope for and then playing our role in the process of bringing that about. Please buy or borrow a copy of the book prior to the first class, and read the first chapter.
