              For over twenty years, Patagonia has organized a Tools Conference, where experts provide practical training to help make activists more effective. Now Patagonia has captured Tools' best wisdom and advice into a book, creating a resource for any organization hoping to hone core sk...ills like campaign and communication strategy, grassroots organizing, and lobbying as well as working with business, fundraising in uncertain times and using new technologies. Patagonia hopes the book will be dog-eared and scribbled in; a solid, inspiring guide and reliable companion. The book is organized in two sections: Strategies, and Tools. Each chapter, written by a respected expert in the field, covers essential principals as well as best practices. A hands-on case study accompanies each chapter and demonstrates the principles in action. Sprinkled throughout are inspirational thoughts from acclaimed activists, such as Jane Goodall, Bill McKibben, Wade Davis, Annie Leonard, and Terry Tempest Williams. An activist's companion in the environmental movement.

              Working to Restore: Why We Do Business in the Regenerative Era

              Working to Restore: Why We Do Business in the Regenerative Era (Hardback)

              During this time of unprecedented environmental, cultural, and financial global disruption, can business save the world? After decades of extraction of human and environmental resources and years of attempts to make business sustainable, today's startups are rewriting the rules o...f business: how it's done, with whom, and, most importantly, for what purpose. We are entering an era when many enterprises have as their primary goal not to make money but to solve problems. From promoting responsible production and consumption to equitable opportunities for all, from encouraging climate action and good health and well-being, these businesses have moved beyond sustainability to regeneration. In Working to Restore, reporter Esha Chhabra draws on her decades of reporting on sustainability to highlight pioneering grassroots entrepreneurs building a new blueprint for business in the 21st century. Working all around the globe, they are obsessed with rethinking, restructuring, and regenerating. For these entrepreneurs, it's about the process -- how was it made, by whom, using what resources, with what materials - and the problems those processes work to alleviate. Examining efforts in nine areas- agriculture, waste, inclusivity in supply chain, inclusivity for the collective good, women, travel, health, energy, and finance - each chapter describes the challenges the world faces in each area and how business is helping to solve these problems. These efforts address a number of problems articulated by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) thus further demonstrating the global relevance of this work. Several companies are profiled illustrating a new perspective on business's powerful role to regenerate the world. These entrepreneurs illustrate an evolution in all aspects of business. They obsess over supply chains. They hire folks that society says are not employable. They travel far and wide to work with artisans, farmers, and manufacturers who create quality products. They s

              A seasonal almanac, and the story of Spencer s time at the pool, accompanied by his dog Sis. Along with initial chapters about Sis and the life cycle of the wild summer steelhead, each of the eight months that wild summer steelhead use the pool constitutes a chapter. He has glean...ed like a thimbleberry patch his natural history notes for the past fourteen seasons for information on the local environment, steelhead and other Pacific salmon that use the pool, vegetation, birds, mammals, insects, reptiles and amphibians, seasonal changes, and interesting events and stories. Spencer is a modern day Thoreau, and the steelhead pool is his Walden Pond.

              Ramon Navarro, a third generation subsistence fisherman and farmer who lives on the coast of Chile at Punta Lobos, learned to surf on a busted surfboard left by a visiting surfer. Since then, he has become one of the top-ten big wave riders. He has used his surfing accomplishment...s to protect his home break, and is admired around the world as an environmental activist, fighting resort development on the point, the building of pulp mills along on the coast, and blocking sewage pipes that pollute the ocean off Pichilemu. Editor Chris Malloy created the film and book, The Fisherman's Son, which focuses on Ramon's rise to big wave fame and how Ramon is using that notoriety to make his voice heard on activism issues. Contributors to the book include Gerry Lopez, Josh Berry, and Jack Johnson. Part of the proceeds to the book and film will be used to support Ramon's environmental efforts.

              Outdoor sports adventurers and rock stars have two things in common, Rick Ridgeway observes in The Do Boys: 52 Stories of Adventure. If they live past 40, many of their friends have not. And if they do reach that milestone, they have probably had as many experiences as most peopl...e twice that age. Rick condenses his long lifetime of adventures, from Everest and K2 to Borneo to Antarctica, into stories that bring his experiences in earth's last wild places back to sea level where all of can reflect on lessons learned. The most valuable stories, Rick writes, are outside the small spheres of our own lives, and paying attention to them can guide us into wider worlds.
