Praise

“If there is any hope for us, it lies in rediscovering and recreating community. Do not doubt this is possible. Read Walk Out Walk On and see for yourself—and see your self.”
—Peter Senge, author of The Fifth Discipline and coauthor of Presence and The Necessary Revolution

“Exuberant and galvanizing, this book takes us to where the future is happening—not in the corridors of power but at the grassroots where a ‘trans-local’ movement is unleashing human creativity and smarts.”
—Joanna Macy, author of World as Lover, World as Self

“This book gives insight and beauty to what is becoming the new, new world—an intimate journey with communities and citizens creating a future with their own hearts, hands, and relationships.”
—Peter Block, author of Community and coauthor of The Abundant Community
