VIDEO: America the Possible – how we can start building the place we truly want for our children and ourselves (5 min.)

September 12, 2013

We all love America and feel lucky to live in a free country with so many opportunities. But we also know that in many ways, our country is falling behind and heading in the wrong direction.

In this short animation, noted environmentalist and author Gus Speth shows us another America: America the Possible.

This is the place we truly want for our children and ourselves — an America where the pursuit of happiness is sought not in ever-more getting and spending, but instead in the growth of human solidarity, real democracy, and devotion to the public good.

Here's the good news: We can start building America the Possible right now in our own homes, streets, neighborhoods, and cities. Watch the video to learn more.
