I called this blog Grow the Forest partly because it’s been germinating in my head for a while now and partly because that’s what we need to do.
We obviously need to grow more forests (or should I say regrow to replace what we’ve destroyed) but we also need to grow both numerous new institutions, systems, businesses, technologies and ways of thinking all incorporating sustainability as well as the numbers of people who incorporate sustainability into their thinking, their values and their living.
So, grow trees, grow good things, grow popular support —> create a sustainable world.
None of this is particularly groundbreaking stuff but worth getting down on screen to flesh out the basis of my thinking.
So what do we start growing and why?
