Ralph Thurm is oprichter van r3.0, een platform dat kennis bundelt voor een transitie naar een open, inclusieve en duurzame samenleving. Voor Ralph was de Corona-periode hét moment om zijn ideeën, het resultaat van 20+ jaar internationaal opereren, in dit (engelstalige) boek samen te brengen.

This book by Ralph Thurm is not only a book about hope, but also a ‘how to’ guide to learn from the covid-19 crisis. Seeing this crisis as a window on what is still to come, be that an economic crisis, ecological crisis, biodiversity crisis, or ultimately an existential crisis for humanity, it offers profound thoughts, patterns and solutions of how to manage and develop a ‘New Normal’ together.

This is Ralph Thurm at his best – an irresistible combination of wisdom, agency and creativity. I love the clarity and urgency of this book. Drastic times demand drastic messages.” — Kees Klomp, Founder, Thrive Institute, Author of Pioniers van de Nieuwe Welvaart

The book spans from assessing the root causes of covid-19, to developing a new understanding of our indvidual responsibility of and for all of us, and finishes by sketching the idea of a regenerative and distributive economy based on the correct understanding of wellbeing and love. Ralph carries us through many of the stereotypes we will need to let go of, and puts forward ideas we need to adopt in the development of this new normal. 

This book is also a very personal log of feelings, desires, fears and frustrations composed as the crises progressed. It is this personal connection that means it should make it to the top of your reading list, delving deeper into what we are and who we need to be as individuals and as humans on this, our  Planet Earth. The bottom line is that our lives depend on making crucial decisions this decade, so let this book be a guide, compendium and an inspiration for your own role in this journey.
