Richer Futures by Ken Worpole
Book DescriptionIn every area of life, traditional, centralized party politics has been failing and the seeds of a new form of political life are being sown. This is true in housing, health, education, consumption and transport, where public policy is attracting increasing criticism. In an age of social alienation and urban despondency Richer Futures is a timely response to the growing interest in community-based, self-help action. It introduces new forms of communication and decision-making and sets out a programme for a sustainable politics. Contributions from some of the best-known thinkers and writers on contemporary urban, cultural and social policy (and campaigns) in Britain today pay tribute to the ideas and industrious activities of the influential writer and commentator Colin Ward. This uplifting collection of essays looks forward to a new politics of self-management and environmentally aware and sustainable lifestyles. Ken Worpole has written a number of books on urban and cultural policy, and a series of influential reports for Comedia, Demos and the Department of the Environment. Originally published in 1999

Utopian thinking in relation to settlements and livelihood has not gone away. There is renewed interest in more convivial forms of urban design and living, drawing upon a history of elective communities, including those influenced by the thought of Swedenborg-a fascinating history with much to offer the architects and policy makers of today.
