Active Hope: How to Face the Mess we're in with Unexpected Resilience and Creative Power
"Active Hope: How to Face the Mess we're in with Unexpected Resilience and Creative Power" by Joanna Macey and Chris Johnstone. This book is about being active participants in bringing about what we hope for. It is a practice developed from the experiences of lifelong activists. The book offers a wealth of nourishing solo and group activities and new ways of thinking that enable us to bring about social change in a joyful, regenerative way. Alternatively, the authors have developed a free online course on Active Hope. This would make an inspiring challenge for your Eco-group, your School Council, or even your entire school community to complete together!
