From the Back Cover
"Co-opportunity is an idea whose time has come. It's not just up to business, it's not just up to government, it's not just up to people – it's up to all of us to find new ways of creating change together."
CEO of Timberland
"Climate change and peak oil mean that we’ll likely see more change in the next 20 years than the last 200. This book is a snapshot of the inspiring human creativity that is going into the start of the Great Transition."
—Rob Hopkins, founder of Transition Towns
"Whether it's on the internet or in your local community, creative co-operation is key to tackling many of the world’s social and environmental issues. That's why this book is so valuable, as a sourcebook for the growing movement of social entrepreneurs."
—Premal Shah, co-founder and president of Kiva.org
"Each chapter abounds with specific examples and case studies of people and organisations out there adding to today's extraordinarily innovative solutions agenda... John showcases that world with a lot of verve and empathy, drawing people in to his own excitement at what it means to work through "a village-scale democracy operating at the global level.""
—Jonathan Porritt, founder director of Forum for the Future (from the Foreword)
