Sustainability pioneer Jim Merkel sets off to three earth-efficient societies; Cuba, Slovenia and Kerala, India, in search of clues to save the world his son Walden will inherit. Along the way he encounters a force that could recover planetary balance – powerful women!
Saving Walden’s World is an intimate journey to the leading edge of a massive planetary shift – where women have smaller families and over-consumers reduce ecological footprints. We explore how the personal decisions of procreation and consumerism play out over generations. But, as population pressures ease, related to rising female status and education, dozens of nations attempt to coerce more births, fearing fewer taxpayers, consumers and followers – and free women. Might we foil our best chance to halt the 6th extinction?
