The outdoor citizen : get out, give back, get active
"A groundbreaking volume from the president and CEO of the Appalachian Mountain Club makes the profound argument that to preserve the environment, a revolution must take place in which every person becomes a champion for nature and the outdoors. In The Outdoor Citizen, John Judge coins the term ?Outdoor Citizen? as he delivers a remarkably persuasive argument for why we must all become citizens of the natural world, reconnecting with life?s most essential foundation, nature, and defending it, embracing it, and instilling in the next generation a keen interest in outdoor leadership. Through The Outdoor Citizen, there is, at last, an easy-to-follow plan for all people to contribute to the cause of preserving the environment. This extraordinary volume is a call to action to commit to an active outdoor lifestyle and make the outdoors an epicenter of our communities. Judge, an international leader in conservation stewardship, covers how to turn our cities into Outdoor Cities, with a wide range of green spaces, outdoor recreation activities, eco- friendly transportation, and sustainable food sources; how to globally transition to green energy sources; what environmental policies must be urgently implemented and how to enact them; and how to fund a sustainable economy. At a time when we are facing an unprecedented climate crisis, the continued use of carbon emissions will lead to devastating, irreversible effects on the earth. This unique volume, brimming with expert advice and case studies, is unprecedented in its comprehensiveness. It is a gamechanger for saving our planet and an entry point into a world of healthier and happier people."--Amazon.
