Want to have realistic hope for our survival in 2050? I can thoroughly recommend environmental legend and futurologist, Sir Jonathon Porritt and his illustrated presentation of "The World We Made" at Yes Group Bristol at 7.30p.m. on Tues 18th Feb. His ground breaking, illustrated book in the words of Alex McKay, a teacher looking back from 2050, tells the revolutionary story of how we got from where we are today (in a pretty bad way, environmentally) to a much better place in the future.
Q & A and book signing.
Doors open 7pm for 7.30pm
Reviews by Richard Branson, Joanna Lumley and others...
'Jonathon Porritt's book dreams big, as if our future depends on it. And it does.' Richard Branson
'I am absolutely bowled over by the brilliance of The World We Made. Its far-sightedness and complete grasp of all the challenges the world is going to face is one thing; to write this charming, easy, accessible, optimistic vision, is really something else.' Joanna Lumley
'A brilliant evocation of how it could turn out right for us by 2050!' Oliver James
'Jonathon Porritt does not avoid calamity, nor does he cave in to Doomsday. His crystal ball throws light on the world of our grandchildren. Uplifting stuff from the pen of one of the world's great futurologists!' Bob Brown
'Only Jonathon Porritt could have produced such an imaginative but believable book about sustainability. Alex Mackay's account of how, by 2050, human ingenuity has cracked it, makes me wish I was going to live to see it.' Prue Leith
'Jonathon Porritt has found both the facts and the spirit required for imagining the future!' Bill McKibben
