I’m not the only writer in my family. My step-daughter has just published her first book. This is a big deal! There were some fraught moments at the end — as there always are, but when it’s your first book you don’t know that’s going to happen. Now Justine is through to the other side and is a published author. Congratulations!
Her blog describes the book better than I ever could.
“The new book The Great Pivot describes 30 sustainability projects in five areas – advanced energy communities, low-carbon mobility, the circular economy, food waste reduction, and nature restoration – that will create millions of meaningful jobs.
Building a sustainable future will not only restore climate stability and reverse mass species extinction, it will also address the crisis in the world of work. Current trends of outsourcing, automation, the gig economy, and low levels of employee engagement have left working Americans anxious about their jobs. Meanwhile, 37 million people of prime working age, 25-64, are not in the labor force, and the 626,000 people released from prison each year have a hard time finding work that will allow them to reintegrate into society.
The Great Pivot provides funding and program pivots for policymakers who want to help create green, meaningful jobs, as well as resources for those who want to switch over to sustainability work. Each sector — private, non-profit, and public sector — has an important role to play in realizing this vision.
With The Great Pivot we have a blueprint for building a sustainable future. Now we just need to find the courage to commit to it.”
I just got my Kindle copy and can’t wait to start reading.
If you buy the book and like it, don’t forget to post a review on Amazon.
