Schumacher College, based near Totnes in Devon, England, opened its doors in the early 1990s and is now an internationally-renowned centre for transformative learning on all aspects of sustainable living.

James Lovelock led the first course on Gaia theory. A host of visionary thinkers has followed, including mathematician and biologist Brian Goodwin, who died in 2009. This book is a realisation of his vision for Schumacher College to publish a collection of essays on sustainable solutions to the current global crisis. Themes include the importance of education, science, Transition thinking, economics, energy sources, business and design, in the context of philosophy, spirituality and mythology.

The contributors include Satish Kumar, Jules Cashford, Fritjof Capra, Rupert Sheldrake, James Lovelock, Peter Reason, Gideon Kossoff, Craig Holdrege, Helena Norbert-Hodge, Colin Tudge, Nigel Topping and many others.

This book is essential reading for anyone concerned about the future of our society and the environment.
Stephan Harding is Head of Holistic Science at Schumacher College, and has been the College's resident ecologist and tutor since 1991. He has a doctorate in behavioural science from the University of Oxford, and is the author of Animate Earth: Science, Intuition and Gaia (2006).
