There’s never been a better time to “be prepared.” Matthew Stein’s comprehensive primer on sustainable living skills—from food and water to shelter and energy to first-aid and crisis-management skills—prepares you to embark on the path toward sustainability. But unlike any other book, Stein not only shows you how to live “green” in seemingly stable times, but to live in the face of potential disasters, lasting days or years, coming in the form of social upheaval, economic meltdown, or environmental catastrophe. When Technology Fails covers the gamut. You’ll learn how to start a fire and keep warm if you’ve been left temporarily homeless, as well as the basics of installing a renewable energy system for your home or business. You’ll learn how to find and sterilize water in the face of utility failure, as well as practical information for dealing with water-quality issues even when the public tap water is still flowing. You’ll learn alternative techniques for healing equally suited to an era of profit-driven malpractice as to situations of social calamity. Each chapter (a survey of the risks to the status quo; supplies and preparation for short- and long-term emergencies; emergency measures for survival; water; food; shelter; clothing; first aid, low-tech medicine, and healing; energy, heat, and power; metalworking; utensils and storage; low-tech chemistry; and engineering, machines, and materials) offers the same approach, describing skills for self-reliance in good times and bad. Fully revised and expanded—the first edition was written pre-9/11 and pre-Katrina, when few Americans took the risk of social disruption seriously—When Technology Fails ends on a positive, proactive note with a new chapter on "Making the Shift to Sustainability," which offers practical suggestions for changing our world on personal, community and global levels.

In "Oko- Kapitalismus, three top strategists show how leading hedge companies are practicing "a new type of industrialism" that is more efficient and profitable, while saving the environment and creating jobs. Paul Hawken and Amory and Hunter Lovins write that in the next century cars will get 200 miles per gallon without compromising safety and power, manufacturers will relentlessly recycle their products, and the world's standard of living will jump without further damaging natural resources. "Is this the vision of a utopia? In fact, the changes described here could come about in the decades to come as the result of economic and technological trends already in place," the authors write. Die Wirtschaftsstragien der Zukunft werden sich an der effizienten Nutzung natuerlicher Ressourcen orientieren. Sie werden damit nicht nur umweltbedingte und soziale Probleme loesen, sondern auch Wohlstand bringen. Seit Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts haben wir Menschen die Natur in groesserem Umfang zerstoert als in allen historischen Epochen davor. Saemtliche lebenden Systeme, die Waelder und Grasflaechen, die Savannen und Steppen, die Fluesse und Meere, die Korallenriffe und die Atmosphaere befinden sich in einem Zustand hoechster Gefaehrdung. Nicht nur die erneuerbaren Ressourcen drohen sich zu erschoepfen, das Leben selbst befindet sich auf dem Rueckzug. Wir laufen Gefahr, das natuerliche Kapital der Erde zu verlieren. Fuer Paul Hawken, Amory Lovins und Hunter Lovins offenbaren sich in dieser Entwicklung die Schatten der industriellen Revolution des 19. Jahrhunderts, die zwar zu einer ungeheuren Steigerung der Produktivitaet des einzelnen fuehrte, am Ende jedoch in einen Krieg gegen die Naturmuendete. Was die Autoren fordern, ist ein radikales Umdenken in Richtung auf eine neue Form des Wirtschaftens, in der die Dienstleistungen der Natur nicht ignoriert werden. Die Dienste, die uns die natuerlichen Systeme leisten, sind vielfaeltig. Ein Wald etwa liefert nicht nur Holz. Er bindet auch Kohlendioxid, schuetzt vor UEberschwemmungen, speichert Naehrstoffe in seinem Boden und vieles mehr. Dass wir uns verhalten haben, als waeren diese Dienste wertlos, fuehrt zu einem grossen Desaster. In Wahrheit naemlich ist der Wert dieser Dienstleistungen geradezu unendlich. Keine Technik kann das lebenserhaltende, hochintelligente und komplexe System des Planeten ersetzen. Wuerden wir jedoch tatsaechlich einen Preis ansetzen, dann beliefe sich der Wert der Dienstleistungen des natuerlichen Kapitalstocks, der jedes Jahr direkt in die Gesellschaft fliesst, auf 33 Billionen Dollar. Der natuerliche Kapitalstock selbst waere mit 400 bis 500 Billionen Dollar zu veranschlagen. Aus diesen Zahlen wird deutlich, wie verantwortungslos und verschwenderisch wir in der Vergangenheit gewirtschaftet haben. Paul Hawken, Amory Lovins und Hunter Lovins stellen dem industriellen Kapitalismus ihr Konzept des Oko-Kapitalismus gegenueber, in dem allen Formen des Kapitals ein Wert zuerkannt wird. Die Dienstleistungen der Umwelt sind in diesem System kein zu vernachlaessigender Produktionsfaktor mehr, sondern werden als die Basis angesehen, die den gesamten Wirtschaftsprozess aufrechterhaelt. Innerhalb von 50 Jahren koennten sich der Lebensstandard weltweit verdoppeln, der Ressourcenverbrauch um 80 Prozent zurueckgehen, der Kohlendioxidgehalt der Atmosphaere zum ersten Mal seit 200 Jahren sinken und Arbeit fueralle geschaffen werden. Was die Autoren beschreiben, ist kein Utopia, sondern eroeffnet sich als reale Moeglichkeit. So wie es vor 300 Jahren als unmoeglich angesehen worden waere, dass ein Mensch die Arbeit von hundert vollbringen kann, so mag es heute unrealistisch erscheinen, dass wir die Produktivitaet unserer Ressourcen um den Faktor Hundert steigern koennen. Und doch gibt es bereits Ansaetze fuer diese neue industrielle Revolution. In ihrem Buch haben die Autoren eine enorme Fuelle von Beispielen zusammengetragen, die zeigen, dass ein effizientes Wirtschaften moeglich ist. Sie berichten von technischen Innovationen sowie von neuen Formen der Organisation und der Produktion. Anhand von Konzepten und Loesungsvorschlaegen legen sie dar, wie industrielle Prozesse in Kreislaeufen gestaltet werden koennen, die weit ueber das blosse Recyceln von Altpapier und Glas hinausgehen.

Award-winning social entrepreneur and permaculturalist Adam Brock draws from ecology, sociology, community economics, social justice, and indigenous practices the world over to present more than eighty proven solutions for building healthy communities. Using the "pattern language" framework developed by architect Christopher Alexander and his colleagues in the 1970s, Brock outlines strategies for redesigning our social and economic systems to mimic nature's resilience and abundance. Practical, innovative, and visually compelling, this book presents actionable and easy-to-understand tools for a compassionate and methodical approach to building better communities. Sidebars and diagrams supplement the text, while case studies illustrate endeavors such as starting a business, launching a social change project, or setting personal goals. Brock suggests ways to engage disempowered communities in a meaningful and authentic way, and draws on eight years of in-depth research and investigation to demonstrate what makes communities work at the most fundamental level. Anyone looking for concrete solutions to many of the social and economic ills that plague our current society will discover a rich resource for growth and change.

This series summary/overview volume—Awakening into Unity—maps a big-picture view of the essential features of our intrinsic unity, and brings their immensity and importance within everyone’s easy, confident grasp. Perhaps more than any other series installment, it affords a grand, breathtaking journey hallmarked with many vital and inspiring stories. First, it presents the story of my life’s work and awakening into inspiring nuances of the unity perspective that I’m certain will help birth a vibrant, healed future. It also shares important aspects of unity uncovered through my extensive research into Big History – the specific mechanics of the universal creation process that made us and our world possible. I also share an integrative vision of how we humans have pursued a communion with this underlying oneness through time; via scientific, religious, spiritual, philosophic, environmental, indigenous perspectives, and more. This investigation ultimately delivers an expansive worldview and a compelling environmental ethic designed to help us re-ground our essentially creative human nature within the larger universal creation process. Significantly though, and far beyond simply presenting my own prescriptive sense of how this restorative planetary shift might best occur, Awakening into Unity chronicles myriad ways that others are already employing this perspective to turn our ship around. These are the stories of us in our striving billions, woven together in an informative, celebratory narrative that brings our diverse world-healing efforts alive, front and center, for all to see. This grand saga evidences and honors humanity moving past climate theory, discussion and debate into decisive, active engagement; the true global awakening and life-saving transformation that’s happening all around us in real time. Unifying threads of this holistic tapestry source from my own efforts and those of others in every facet and type of human entity on Earth today; the pivotal achievements of notable contributors seeking to co-create a better future. Together, these examples provide a wealth of wisdom and practical solutions helpful to all. Awakening into Unity thus captures the vital, living, unprecedented truth that all parts of our world are now rising and shining into a bright, new, Earth-healing day. No other movement, tradition, belief system, or collective enterprise can claim such broad-based evolutionary inclusiveness. Terragenesis, Gaia enthroned, is indeed here; her heart is beating; and she’s alive! Quite simply, and without exaggeration, this has become the single most important collective human effort ever undertaken, and the zeitgeist, the defining feature and spirit of our time. May this book serve as an energizing catalyst and helpful road map for our great leap. And may it help you move confidently into a brighter future filled with grace, intelligence, effectiveness, compassion, comradeship, integration, and Joy!

»Wissen« und »Forschung« sind zu Schlüsselbegriffen für das Design avanciert. In der Designforschung wird derzeit die wechselwirksame Beziehung zwischen Praktiken des Entwerfens, Wissens und Produzierens eingehend befragt. Von zentraler Bedeutung ist dabei der Aspekt des Anwendungskontextes, der das Paradox beschreibt, dass die gegenwärtige Produktion von Wissen sich zwar gesellschaftlichen Fragestellungen annähert, zugleich aber eine Kommerzialisierung dieses Wissens befördert. Die interdisziplinären Beiträge des Bandes zeigen, wie das praktische und theoretische Designwissen innerhalb dieses Spannungsfeldes verhandelt wird.

Plum and pear trees shade park benches in Kamloops, British Columbia. Tomatoes and cucumbers burst forth from planters at City Hall in Provo, Utah. Strawberries and carrots flourish along the sunny sidewalks of a Los Angeles neighborhood. The idea that public land could be used creatively to grow fresh food for local citizens was beginning to gain traction when Public Produce was first published in 2009, but there were few concrete examples of action. Today, things are different: fruits and vegetables are thriving in parks, plazas, along our streets, and around our civic buildings. This revised edition of Public Produce profiles the many communities and community officials that are rethinking the role of public space in cities, and shows how places as diverse as parking lots and playgrounds can sustain health and happiness through fresh produce. But these efforts produce more than food. Revitalizing urban areas, connecting residents with their neighborhoods, and promoting healthier lifestyles are just a few of the community goods we harvest from growing fruits and vegetables in our public gathering spots. Taking readers from inspiration to implementation, Public Produce is chock full of tantalizing images and hearty lessons for bringing agriculture back into our cities.
