Building an Ecovillage Future presents the personal life journey and vision of a very special human being, Ross Jackson, and his life partner Hildur Jackson. Ross rose from a modest background to achieve extraordinary success in the institutions of international business and finance. From his insider's understanding of the destructive nature of the institutions he came to master, he has lent his energies to the task of creating societies more responsive to needs of people, community and nature. In his book he shares his personal insights into the forthcoming step to human spiritual maturity by offering clear information on topics such as the cause of global financial instability. Though many of the world's leaders remain in denial, it is evident that an increasingly unstable and destructive economic system that values money more than life is leading humanity toward ecological and financial collapse. In contrast, And We Are Doing It! Demonstrates possiblities within our reach to organize human spaces into ecovillages that restore our sense of community and our connection to the earth, while providing us with environmentally sound and sustainable sources of livelihood.

Read this one about a year ago, am very optimistic that his dream can be a reality (without having to wait an environmental catastrophe to happen/avoiding his last chapter to become real). Read full review
