Dennis Frank answers these questions in this week's Green Planet broadcast.
He profiles 7 good news green stories from the past couple of years, then with his guest Bill Watson he discusses an intentional community development plan for a Coromandel site that is being designed to serve as a model for regenerating local economies in rural areas.
He advocates that after a quarter century of talking up the paradigm shift, it's now time to take collective action to make it happen.
He suggests forming a genuinely alternative political movement to drive that process and outlines the design features & principles that such a movement must incorporate in order to be successful.

What's the alternative? Working together in a better way.
Tune in to find out how!
