“We have left it so late to put our human house in order, that the only strategy left is that of positive deviance. We can’t wait for the international treaties, institutional reform or wise government leadership that will be too long coming.
“The only option is for as many people as possible to get on and do the right thing – wherever we are. It is a very positive revolution: against everything that leads back to behaviours that caused the ecological and economic breakdown in the first place, and for a stampede towards a future that puts improving the quality of life for people and the environment as the primary purpose of everything we do.”
