Civic Revolution

A Citizen's Guide

by

Cities are the places that have the greatest influence over life on Earth.


The single biggest cause of global warming, the urbanisation of humanity, is potentially the principal solution. The ‘ecological genius’ of the city enables us to live better – while consuming, wasting and polluting less. However it remains a vast, largely hidden civic power. What is missing is a citizen’s guide to turn the place where we live into the seat of the solution.

Energising, motivating and uplifting, Civic Revolution is a topical and relevant book about the power of belonging that gets to the heart of how – and why – all of us must act.

‘A timely and readable call to arms to people who want to make life better in their local community but also understand the need for more fundamental system change.’ – Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive of the Royal Society of Arts.

"Civic Revolution is about the clash between our culture and wellbeing, and how this dissonance might be resolved. Ric answers a fundamental question for our time: how is it possible to mend the broken link between prosperity and a sustainable future?"
Sir Tim Smit, co-founder Eden Project

"A call to arms to people who want to make life better in their local community but also understand the need for more fundamental system change."
