Together Resilient by Ma’ikwe Ludwig
Written by former Dancing Rabbit Member, Ma’ikwe Ludwig, Together Resilient: Building Community in the Age of Climate Disruption, is a book that advocates for citizen-led, community-based action first and foremost: why wait for the government when you can take action today, with your neighbors?
Together Resilient looks at intentional community as a model for a low carbon future. While looking realistically at the state of the world and the realities of climate disruption, it finds hope in examples of communities that already live high quality lives that the planet can sustain.
It also looks at community as an essential element for surviving the coming (and already present) changes with more resilience and grace, and offers concrete examples of building community as a tool for reducing carbon emissions, outside the context of residential intentional communities.
“When people ask me where to move to escape climate change, I tell them there’s no escape and that the thing to look for is a strong community. This book explains how to build that kind of community anywhere–it’s a manual for the future.”
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
“Is it possible to jettison our current system of exploitation and environmental destruction, and create a new system, that is not only sustainable but affords us a comfortable and fulfilling life? The answer is a resounding yes. Ma’ikwe Ludwig eloquently reminds us how the way is fraught with challenges and shows us how to conquer them. This is a must read for anyone who cares about the future of the human race.”
Chong Kee Tan, founder of Bay Bucks
“The future of the planet lies in the creation of small groups that allow for personal growth and efficacious action at a larger scale. Ma’ikwe Ludwig is a veteran of this movement and Together Resilient provides the latest report from the front.”Dr. David Sloan-Wilson, Author of Does Altruism Exist?
