Told through the words of Alex Mc Kay, a history teacher looking back from 2050 to see how we got from where we are now to that world in 2050.
Over the last 40 years, Jonathon Porritt has been one of the world’s leading environmentalists. In The World We Made (Alex McKay's Story from 2050), Jonathon sets out to counter the doom and gloom that surrounds today’s debates about sustainability. Instead of portraying the future as a polluted, over-populated hell-hole, he shows it as a place where we’d all love to live. Exciting, aspirational, high-tech, fair and hopeful. Told through the words of Alex McKay, a history teacher looking back from 2050 to see how we got from where we are now to that world in 2050, it conjures up a compelling picture of a truly sustainable world.
