How to be alive : a guide to the kind of happiness that helps the world by Colin Beavan( Recording )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Colin Beavan embarked upon a yearlong experiment to lead a zero net-impact existence in the middle of New York City, he had no idea what a profound effect it would have upon himself and others around him. For Colin, the project, chronicled in a book, a documentary, and an ongoing lecture series, formed the basis of a radical 'lifestyle redesign' that reached beyond just environmental activism. And, in the course of his travels and lectures, he encountered scores of people who were similarly breaking from traditional ideas about work, home, and even family in order to take their futures, and the planet's, in their own hands. In the process they made a startling discovery, a happier way of life that is also having a deeply positive impact on the world
Occupy love( Visual )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening: millions of people are deciding that enough is enough - the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life. The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, Indigenous activists at the Alberta Tar Sands, the climate justice movement, and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world's key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, bell hooks and Charles Eisenstein."--Occupylove.org
Surviving progress by Mathieu Roy( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Librement inspiré du best-seller de Ronald Wright, Brève histoire du progrès, "Survivre au progrès"adopte une approche innovatrice en racontant comment notre civilisation mondiale répète, à plus grande échelle, les erreurs du passé. Ce film nous démontre à quel point l'humanité est myope et manque de perspective à long terme et rappelle que c'est du passé que l'homme peut tirer des leçons pour le futur. En radiographiant le sort des grandes civilisations disparues, nous découvrirons une similarité entre les erreurs du passé et le rythme actuel de la surexploitation de nos ressources. La chute des civilisations anciennes nous laisse-t-elle présager que notre avenir n'a rien de prometteur ? L'ingéniosité et la technologie sont-elles suffisantes pour nous sortir de ce qui semble être une crise planétaire? Ce film s'inscrit tout à fait dans le 21e siècle et traite de sujets qui touchent tous les terriens !". (Source : jaquette)

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bill McKibben meets Bill Bryson in this seriously engaging look at one man's decision to put his money where his mouth is and go off the grid for one year--while still living in New York City--to see if it's possible to make no net impact on the environment. In other words, no trash, no toxins in the water, no elevators, no subway, no products in packaging, no air-conditioning, no television. After this mad endeavor, Beavan explains to the rest of us how we can realistically live a more "eco-effective" and by turns more content life in an age of inconvenient truths
How to Be Alive : No Impact Man's Guide to a High Impact Life by Colin Beavan( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deeply concerned about the environment, Colin Beavan went on a year-long experiment to lead a zero net-impact existence in the middle of New York City. The project went far beyond the typical 'reduce, reuse, recycle' credo and had a profound effect on Colin and those around him, in the process prompting what he came to refer to as a 'lifestyle redesign.' His project, chronicled in a book, a documentary, and an ongoing lecture series, has provoked and inspired tens of thousands of people. He shares his own experiences alongside those of the many people he has met along his journey who have discovered thousands of transformational lifestyle adjustments - small and large - that offer both security and meaning in a world confronted by ecological disaster, failing economies, war and social injustice. In the process, he helps readers embark on the quest for a 'good life' of their own lives - both better for them and the world. Print run 75,000
