“Acting as if Tomorrow Matters” hits the bookshelves in Rio

Just in time for the beginning of the official Rio activities, comes Professor John C. Dernbach’s book “Acting as if Tomorrow Matters: Accelerating the Transition to Sustainability.” This book notes that we already know what needs to be done to move towards a sustainable system, the trick is to actually do it. Professor Dernbach and the 42 contributing authors actually propose and list some things that we can do now to move this transition. This very practical tome fits in well with the tenor of what is happening here – the idea that real change will come from actions that persons and the private sector take and perhaps less from international negotiations. More on that later.
