Publisher Greenleaf have put up information on About Time, a book I've edited, featuring a galaxy of intellectual talent including Jonathon Porritt, Will Hutton, Baroness Warnock, Geoff Mulgan, Martin Rees, Ghillean Prance and Jay Griffiths, each tackling a different angle on time and sustainability in their inimatable ways:
About Time is a high-profile collection aimed at creating debate about where the values of our contemporary society are taking us. It will foster reflective thinking about different aspects of time, using the concept of time to communicate and illuminate the idea of sustainable development and question our idolatry of speed. In doing so, it aims to inspire and help decision-makers in business, government and elsewhere to appreciate the challenges of sustainable development and how they might respond, and inspire individuals to create change in their own lives.
For readers of books such as No Logo and Longitude, this book provides a thought-provoking twist, bringing together time and sustainability in a refreshing, provocative and accessible way.
