Economic sustainability is not enough if human civilization is going to have a long presence on Earth.  We need to not only reform our institutions but redefine what they are and how they operate; and we need a new vision of what it means to be human in a world where neither transcendence or apocalypse are viable options.  One possibility is “rewilding”–bringing our constructed environments in line with our instinctive and cognitive needs.


Karl Schroeder is an award-winning science fiction writer with eight published novels to his credit. He also speaks and consults on the future for clients such as the Canadian government, the army, and the business community. Karl lives in Toronto with his wife and daughter.
