This book presents a fundamentally new and different approach to the problem: climate change, the growing gap between rich and poor, the slow decay of our democracy, etc. ... these are symptoms of a deeper crisis - one which cannot be fixed by technical measures.

It is all about life and the meaning of life. We cannot wait for our leaders to act. Nobody else will do it for us! As ordinary people, citizens, workers, consumers, we have to empower ourselves; we are the main and only agents who can truly initiate the move towards change.

The Solution is Simple: it is in our hands. In our daily lives we have all the necessary means to create, locally, the basic conditions for ourselves to thrive - and to put pressure on our leaders to follow us.

But it is also demanding: we have to learn to think differently and invent and practise new ways to work, exchange, share and live together; we have to discover a new practice of freedom, inclusiveness and solidarity-mutuality.

This book reinvents practical ways of living. It proposes a concrete strategy for change, in 40 points, how to do this here and now.

It is also a guide to the search for meaning, because the change of mentality that is urgently needed can only arise from a better and deeper understanding of the meaning of life and of the laws of the universe.

Yves de Morsier, architect by training, proposes here a very practical approach that draws from about 50 years of experience in forms of gentle development that aim at a fair share of common resources. He lives on the South Coast of New South Wales (Australia) where, with his wife Ursula, he has built an off-grid solar powered rammed earth house, facing a national park, where they experiment with new ways of sharing and facilitate times of meditation and workshops.
