'The Ancient Greeks had a word for this - a time of chaos, change and yet also opportunity. They called it Kairos. This book is Kairos incarnate, passionate about the realities, clear about the changes we need, funny when it needs to be, and pioneering in that it takes us from chaos to opportunity. ' Martin Palmer, Secretary General of the Alliance of Religions and Conservation (ARC), CEO of FaithInvestVast swathes of the current economic system have to be dismantled to secure humanity's future. Until recently that was thought impossible. Covid-19 proves this wrong. It is possible to shut polluting businesses overnight and pay people during a transition. Because Covid-19 has done half the job for us, a sustainable future is finally within our grasp. This book explains how societies can embrace this unique chance to build a future where people live with decency, and in balance with nature.
