This book features green voices from around the world and will explore the new world where far more people are older and a significant force in the economy. After a century of the cult of the young - things have changed and economically for the first time in a very long time, much older people are much better off than much younger people in general. This is a sudden change which has happened over the last 12 years and we seek to explore the new realities of life for everyone as well as the particular challenges, for society and for the individual, of life as an older person. We would like to create an economy which is welcoming to all the new older people we have in society so that they can play their full part and reach their own full potential in a supportive environment and economy, enriching their lives and participating with a respectful society for their experience and wisdom. As greens we value life long learning and participation.

In the Summer of Love in San Francisco's Haight-Asbury, a charismatic young hippie by the name of Stephen Gaskin launched "Monday Night Class"-a weekly event which drew together an eclectic mix of truth-seekers and flower children. Soon the class became a caravan, and after touring the country this colorful crew decided to seek a plot of land and found a commune based on their shared values. Thus was born The Farm in Summertown, Tennessee. The Farm Then and Now presents the story of a group that has defied the odds, blending idealism with a practical approach to intentional community and creating a model for sustainable living. Just as the Monday Night Classes taught students to open their hearts and minds, The Farm continues as a School of Change, demonstrating ways to operate collectively in terms of: * Land, water, and stewardship * Health care, building, and infrastructure * Cooperation, compassion, and spiritual values For humans to survive as a species, we must relearn the skills needed to work together; the lessons of The Farm can be applied in any community or organization. The Farm Then and Now addresses both the successes and shortcomings of this unique ongoing social experiment, showing how what was once the largest commune in the world has evolved into an exceptional example of living lightly on the earth. Douglas Stevenson has been a member of The Farm Community for forty years. His company Green Life Retreats hosts the Farm Experience Weekend and other instructional seminars about sustainable living.

At a time when the world is reeling from multiple economic and ecological crises, an international cast of ecologists and gender specialists from the Global North and Global South provide a multidisciplinary perspective on gender, sustainability, and livelihoods. With the 20 year review of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development to be held in Brazil in 2012, this book boldly reclaims the concept of sustainable livelihoods for women. Authors from 10 different countries show how women engage in policy decision on climate change and consumptions, managing solidarity economies, farming, micro credit, value chains, and strategies in post-conflict contexts.

This collection of essays seeks to provide an understanding of gender relations in sustainable development. Researchers, activists and policy-makers from the North and South offer new ways to challenge dominating knowledge-systems and development institutions, and discuss the difficulties women face on the margins of the development process. Contributions on resource management, power, knowledge production, culture, development institutions and politics, health and economics show that gender relations are not simply a footnote on our understanding of history and societies, but are central to the development discourse. The contributers include: Janet Abramovitz, Franck Amalric, Frederique Apffel Marglin, Lourdes Arzipe, Tariq Banuri, Rosi Braidotti, Raff Carmen, Willy Douma. Atu' Emberson-Bain, Wendy harcourt, Sabine Hausler, Noleen Heyzer, Heleen van der Hombergh, Cecile Jackson, Devaki Jain, Loes Keysers, Judith Richter, Gita Sen, Marja-Liisa Swantz, Corinne Wacker, Ange Wieberdink and Saskia Wieringa.

As the twenty-first century faces a crisis of democracy and sustainability, this book attempts to bring academics and alternative globalisation activists into conversation. Through studies of global neoliberalism, ecological debt, climate change, and the ongoing devaluation of reproductive and subsistence labor, these uncompromising essays by internationally distinguished women thinkers expose the limits of current scholarship in political economy, ecological economics, and sustainability science.
