  • WPC Book 2: What do we do after the pandemic?

    We've made a mess of the systems we depend on. 

     

    WPC Book #2 asked contributors to survey the landscape and address the systems change they believe would most benefit humanity. Chapters look back on the 'before' and the 'during,' and put forth a mix of concrete and abstract suggestions aimed at pointing us down a better path for the 'after.'

     

    WPC Book #2 book will challenge you to consider both what's normal and what's possible. It will invite you to think about some of the ways in which we live and the reasons why. It will also invite you to consider what life might be like if we stopped doing destructive things and replaced them with generative practices. In short, it is a hopeful book about, and for, our collective future.

     

    Our lives can be far better than that which we've known, but before we can demand it we need to collectively decide what we want. It's time to decide on the future we want and start building it. We can't go on like this.

     

    What do we do after the pandemic? is available for pre-order.
