Sustainable Happiness: Live Simply, Live Well, Make a Difference

Posted on: January 29, 2015

sustainable-happinessOur daughter Elysha’s favorite magazine is YES! The Yes! founders, Fran and David Korten, and editor Sarah van Gelder, have been colleagues of Alternatives/SLW! for over a decade.

A board member of colleague organization Jubilee Economics recently sent this recommendation:

My friend gave me this book for Christmas. I am always happy to read a non-consumerism message, especially when it is geared toward how we can be happier without too much stuff. –Patricia ‘Trish’ Goedecke

I’ve added Sustainable Happiness to SLW! Recommends.

Sustainable Happiness: Live Simply, Live Well, Make a Difference

Edited by Sarah van Gelder and the staff of YES! Magazine
Paperback, 168 pages

With contributions by writers like Annie Leonard, Matthieu Ricard, and Vandana Shiva, SUSTAINABLE HAPPINESS features some of the most insightful and eloquent thinkers YES! has worked with on the meaning, and pursuit, of happiness. What is true happiness if it doesn’t include the happiness of others and the health of a living planet?

“Somehow a working planet, a thriving society, and a satisfying personal life are hitched together—and this fine volume offers powerful clues on the search for those connections!” — Bill McKibben, author and environmental leader
