Andrew Revkin: Dot Earth

Andrew Revkin hosts the Dot Earth blog over at the New York Times and wrote a really interesting post about outdoor experiences and environmental values. He quoted part of one of Richard Louv's latest blog post, which was really insightful.

While struggling with the idea of sustainability and how it suggests that things stay the same, a friend of Richard Louv's came up with an

"..........alternative to the word sustainability: “‘Thriveability’ is much more powerful, and helps elevate the focus and actions on higher principles….With children, do we just want them to survive or do we want them to thrive — the answer becomes obvious when you focus on the right question.”

Let's all thrive together.

(Thrive is also a charity in the UK "using gardens to change lives".)
