Book: Blessed Unrest by Paul Hawken

All about 'working at the commons'. Subtitle is "How theLargest Movement in the World Came into Being and Why No One Saw It Coming." It describes the organic development of local initiatives on the environment, social justice & indigenous rights & how they've collectively made an impact even though they are unconnected & not part of a centrally motivated or charismatically led international 'movement'. Fascinating thesis that local initiatives can collectively make a global difference.
