About The Book:

After holding a book preview in Rio, we officially launch the book in London.

The Future We Choose – A Collection from Think Act Vote

How can we create the future that you choose?

Every one of us has ideas and personal experiences to share that can lead us to a brighter future. In the pages of this book, over two hundred people reveal their vision of the world they want to live in and the ways in which we can think, act and vote to create it. Beautifully illustrated, this is a personal, political exploration of what we value, and how we can live these values in our daily life.

This book is an invitation to you, wherever in the world you are, to imagine the future of your choice and inspire us to build it with you. Our global future should be created by all of us, together. The Future We Choose is the start of a new conversation for making that happen.

“It is rare that someone writes a book with passion where the effort is aimed not at knowing the answers but understanding the question…I feel a new form of democracy stirring and it is exciting and vital. Go make a difference I say. Read this book and start now.” Tim Smit, The Eden Project

“Imagination is the most precious currency we have. This anthology is a priceless, awe-inspiring companion in a time for new dreams.” Jonathan Robinson, Founder of The Hub

‘An idea that could send a transforming fire to the future.’ Ben Okri, Author & Poet

“At the vanguard of re-imagining how we can participate in creating the future we choose, this book charts the beginnings of a collaborative revolution in politics.” Tamsin Omond, Lush and Climate Rush

“What keeps us trapped by the mistakes of the past? Often it is the inability to imagine the world being truly different, a lack of example or inspiration to follow, or simply not believing that we can make a difference. The Future We Choose from Think Act Vote has a cure for each of these ills.” Andrew Simms, New Economics Foundation

“Drawing on a cleverly conceived, beautifully executed project, The Future We Choose offers a critical challenge on the current state of politics and the world in general.” Tessy Britton, Social Spaces
