This article published on The Nation and adapted from distinguished fellow and co-chair of the Next System Project Gus Speth’s book The Bridge at the Edge of the World: Capitalism, the Environment, and Crossing from Crisis to Sustainability, dives deeply into Speth’s belief that in order to create and sustain systemic change and free ourselves from the current crisis, people must come together for the common good.

We are all communities of a shared fate. We will rise or fall together.
