The world is entering a period of great change. The natural environment is collapsing. Social disruption abounds. Societies across the globe are breaking down.

Out of this chaos, however, comes the opportunity to avoid complete collapse and instead foster a breakthrough: to reimagine our future, our connection to each other, and to nature.

A world where people live in harmony with nature. Sounds like a nice dream, doesn’t it? But is it possible?

Our latest book says yes. In Dreaming the Future Kenny Ausubel, award-winning social entrepreneur, author, journalist, and filmmaker, and cofounder (with his wife Nina Simons) of the Bioneers Conference, shares with readers his hope that by learning from the natural world we can change human society to something more sustainable, more just, and less destructive. Toward that end, Ausubel examines some of the biggest ideas, overarching trends, and important developments of our time.

Dreaming the Future is available now. For a preview of Ausubel’s witty and poignant prose, take a look at this excerpt, “Honey, We Shrunk the Planet.”
