Below is a list of ongoing projects that keep me busy:

EarthEd: Rethinking Education on a Changing Planet

How should education be designed to both teach students to be sustainability leaders and be prepared to survive the massive ecological disruptions they’ll be facing. State of the World 2017 explores these two questions.


A reality TV show I’m developing that would follow six young Americans as they move back in with their parents to farm their parents’ yards. Why? To help ready us for a future where most of us will live in multigenerational households again with at least some of the family members sustaining the household by growing their own food.

The Club for Degrowth

Degrowth is an essential process for getting to a sustainable future. This project explores strategies to get overdeveloped countries to smoothly undertake degrowth of their economies.

Catan: Oil Springs

An eco-educational scenario for the popular board game The Settlers of Catan, to help make teaching about climate change and the limits to growth fun and entertaining.

Raising an Ecowarrior

Since having a child in 2012 I’ve been exploring how to raise him both sustainably and in a way he’s prepared to survive the transition to a hot Earth.

Is Sustainability Still Possible?

Worldwatch’s State of the World 2013 explores this ultimate question and while I won’t answer it here, the odds of an affirmative aren’t very good.

Transforming Cultures

Started as State of the World 2010 this project explores strategies to transform cultures, making it feel as natural to live sustainably as living as a consumer feels today.

Moving Toward Sustainable Prosperity

Worldwatch’s State of the World 2012 looks at ways to bring about a more sustainable and prosperous future.
