Change of Era – our world in transition

This book gives a galvanizing account of developments that are getting to grips with the tipping point period in which we find ourselves today. All initiatives matter and every individual counts.

In the decades ahead the world will transform into a new global community with a new economy where power relations that are familiar to us today are radically overturned.

Change of Era draws a portrait of this transition in various contexts: education, healthcare, energy and finance. Because people today are no longer the singular focus in these sectors, they have begun to devise and implement their own alternatives. Together these are giving shape to a bottom-up movement that is essential for the transition towards a society and economy better attuned to people’s lives. With its tangible and at times shocking portrayal of the violent clash between the established order and the forthcoming new order, this book shows us what lies ahead.
