We are celebrating 40 Years of Publishing Books for a World of Change and we are honoured to have today's post from Judith Plant, New Society Publishers cofounder, and Publisher Emeritus, sharing with us her story of how a meeting at a book table changed the trajectory of her and partner Chris (Kip) Plant's lives.
New Society Publishers is proud to be celebrating 40 years of activist, solutions-oriented publishing.
From our roots in nonviolent civil disobedience training during the Vietnam war, to the present, we have published over 600 books, some across a dozen languages. We continue to work to bring positive solutions and cutting edge ideas to some of the most troubling challenges of our time.
Delayed Earth Overshoot Day points to opportunities to build future in harmony with our finite planet
COVID-19 has caused humanity's Ecological Footprint to contract, pushing the date of Earth Overshoot Day back more than three weeks compared to last year. The challenge of relaunching our economies presents countries with a unique chance to act on the future we want.
Publishing Director Sue Custance writes about the lack of solutions in 'Planet of the Humans' and focuses on Ecological Footprint by Mathis Wackernagel and Bert Beyers, which provides information for how humans can manage our limits on a finite planet.
Earth Overshoot Day is July 29th ...the earliest ever Earth Overshoot Day marks the date when humanity’s annual demand on nature exceeds what Earth’s ecosystems can regenerate in that year.
