"We face a pressing challenge of creating resilient communities able to meet the challenges of peak oil, climate change and over consumption. Honeycomb Kids provides an easy-to-read, handy tool for shaping a sustainable, fulfilling future. While it provides practical ideas for how to nurture children who focus on what really matters, it also challenges parents and community members to reconsider how we live. Hopefully it will generate conversations and action at dinner tables, schools, playgroups, places of worship, parties and even boardrooms throughout the country."
