Thomas Jefferson , Mahatma Ghandi and Jesus Christ were outlaws. They challenged the current order of things in favor of a new paradigm. Although outnumbered and doubted at first, each had the knowledge, vision and courage to see that the old system was so broken it needed much more than fixing - it needed redesigning.

Today, we face a threat of such magnitude, that if it is not addressed in time, may be too late to fix. That threat is mankind's addiction to non-sustainable fuels and the acceptance of systems that produce lethal waste products. The good news, is that we have been blessed with men and women who, like the social reformers mentioned above, have defied the accepted norms of industrialized society in order to design a world that can sustain rather than kill itself.

Leaders such as Buckminster Fuller, John Todd, Stewart Brand and Jay Baldwin have emerged as the Design Outlaws of the 20th and now 21st centuries. Their ideas and beliefs have evolved into real products, methodologies and technologies that are at this moment, solving problems once thought unsolvable.

The book "Design Outlaws on the Ecological Frontier" is the companion to the Award Winning Film: Ecological Design: Inventing the Future and provides a priceless compendium of knowledge, realities and tools for building a sustainable future. Just add vision and courage, and see what it can do for you.
