Banyen's Description: 

Scientists, activists and politicians are enthusiastic in praise for Guy Dauncey’s new ecotopian novel-of-ideas, Journey To The Future. From Elizabeth May, NDP MP Murray Rankin and UK Green Party leader Caroline Lucas, to activists Tzeporah Berman, Angela Bischoff and Bill McKibben, and scientists David Suzuki, Andrew Weaver and Elisabet Sahtouris, the endorsements for Dauncey’s new book are united: Journey To The Future is a realistically hopeful gamechanger that must be widely read.

In this heartening ecotopian novel, young protagonist Patrick Wu visits a future world—Vancouver in 2032—brimming with innovation and hope, where the climate crisis is being tackled, the solar revolution is underway and a new cooperative economy is taking shape. But enormous danger still lurks.

It’s a race. A race between the expanding reach of our empathy as it stretches across the world, bringing love and intelligent cooperation for the good of all, and the clutching fear or tribal distrust, made more powerful by modern technology. Which will win?

This “novel” is really an imagining of better ways for humans to live together on earth—things we already know and can do— and it has appendixes on themes/practices/resources. Over 900 footnotes (a wealth of existing ideas/practices/innovations) plus a study guide and list of organizations active for change are at www.journeytothefuture.ca.

David R. Boyd, co-chair of Vancouver's Greenest City initiative, says Journey to the Future is “an imaginative tour de force, blending science, philosophy and fiction into a delightful story about how we can and must change the world.”

“This brilliant book shows solutions to the climate crisis that offer a future rich in opportunity and joy.” —David Suzuki
