The message that we share at SDW is that we can make a difference. Often, it is a message that is lost in the cacophony of fear that mass media spreads. Imagine my surprise when I caught a news story on CTV about a new book by author Chris Turner called The Geography of Hope. Turner wrote the book after the birth of his daughter. The message? The changes that we keep saying should be made, but never quite find the time to do, advocate for or invest in are already happening.
Turner travelled the world to document that successes that individuals, communities, cities and countries have had in building the communities of tomorrow today! Check out the link above to buy his book or this link to his webpage. I think it will give you the hope we are all looking for to continue to fight for the change we want to see.
