Dear all,

the latest CROSSTALKS book I edited is out!

“WE CAN CHANGE THE WEATHER - 100 CASES OF CHANGEABILITY”

is the title of the 4th CROSSTALKS book. The book documents 100 tangible local initiatives from all over the world that fit into a constructive and holistic movement for social and ecological change.
The selection itself was motivated by scientific researchers, architects, artists, political thinkers and entrepreneurs who try to make a positive difference in our quest for a future of prosperity, freedom and fun without undermining nature and humanity.

The impressive international mix of contributors ranges from the Dutch architect Rem Koolhaas & OMA (who recently won the the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement for the 12th International Architecture Exhibition) and Belgium’s finest architects Julien Desmedt, Salvatore Bono and Sebastian-Moreno Vacca to the artist François Schuiten, composer Walter Hus and arctic traveller Dixie Dancercoer. From the Natural Cooking School in Westmalle to the Rocky Mountain institute in Boulder, from a sound project with Philippe Starck in Paris to Hyadachi storytelling in Barcelona. You can find the complete list of contributions in attachment.

The production of the book is the final part of the Energy Efficiency project that started 3 years ago co-joining VUB CROSSTALKS, UGENT, Brussels Capital Region, Flanders District of Creativity and VITO with IBBT, 3E and BURO II as supporting partners.

PROMOTION AND DISTRIBUTION

In collaboration with our publisher VUB Press, this book will be promoted and distributed throughout Europe and the US in scientific, artistic and mainstream bookshops and via Amazon.com. This summer the book will be available at the Biennale di Venezia’s bookshops Giardini and Arsenale.
