Blessed Unrest

Paul Hawken, better known for his book, “The Ecology of Commerce,” has a new book out. It is called, “Blessed Unrest: How the Largest Social Movement in History is Restoring Grace, Justice, and Beauty to the World.” In the opening pages he describes his experience of traveling the world, giving presentations, and coming home with various business cards from members of the audience. He would throw them into a jar for safe keeping. Over time, he realized that there are ALOT of people working on issues of sustainable living. This short presentation gives some perspective on how big and diverse this movement is, even though there is no central leadership, nor is there any agreed upon ideology. It is almost happening on its own.
