Dear friends and colleagues,
Over the last few weeks the Simplicity Institute has published a number of new reports, focusing primarily on education, mindfulness, and degrowth. We’ve even drawn the attention of Richard Heinberg, from the Post-Carbon Institute, who has offered the following endorsement:
“The Simplicity Institute is an indispensable resource, providing rigorous and visionary statements on how to achieve a ‘prosperous way down’ as we approach energy descent and the end of growth.”
– Richard Heinberg
Clive Hamilton has also offered the following words of praise:
“The Simplicity Institute is a beacon of hope.”
– Clive Hamilton
Below we have listed our new Simplicity Institute Reports, which link to the full papers. We’re particularly excited about The Simplicity Exercises, by Mark A. Burch, and “Retrofitting the Suburbs,” by David Holmgren. (For a complete list of our publications, see here).
Retrofitting the Suburbs for the Energy Descent Future, David Holmgren
Educating for Simple Living, Mark A. Burch
Degrowth, Expensive Oil, and the New Economics of Energy, Samuel Alexander
Mindfulness: The Doorway to Simple Living, Mark A. Burch
Communicating Simplicity, Mark A. Burch
We’ve got several more reports already in the pipeline, so we’ll keep you posted, and we’re still accepting submission for the “Stories of Simplicity” book. If you are able to offer your story, please click here.
