SHOW TOPIC: How Soon Is now? The Handbook For Global Change…

“A blueprint for the future” — Russell Brand

“For anyone interested in considering how we got into this mess and how we can get out of it, How Soon is Now? will not disappoint… Pinchbeck is an important thinker of our time, and his is a brave and necessary book.” – Dr Jason Hickel, LSE Review of Books

For the last few years the world has been on the brink of an ecological mega-crisis, and our actions over the next few years will determine the global landscapes for years to come. In the last few months alone we’ve seen incredible movements arising all around the world which have been borne out of the catastrophic catalysts around us- environmental actions, Me Too, Never Again, and more. This is exactly what author, philosopher, and radical thinker Daniel Pinchbeck has been predicting; that our crucial crises now are actually an opportunity for conscious communal change.


Drawing on a huge range of resources and references, from economics to Eastern philosophies and religions, Pinchbeck presents a compelling argument for the need for change on a global basis. How Soon is Now? is a manifesto and a tactical plan of action. It proposes a new narrative for a unified social movement. Through global cooperation, we can face this collective threat- ecologically, socially, politically, culturally, and spiritually- in order to not just survive, but thrive and expand into a new consciousness.
