Author - Kosha Anja Joubert and Robin Alfred
Publisher - Permanent Publications

Permanent Publications says, "Beyond you and me is the first volume in the Four Keys to Sustainable Communities series and is a practical anthology for anyone seeking to rebuild existing fragmented villages and communities, establish new group enterprises and ecovillages, and heal the wounds of conflict and social division. It is for those seeking to live cooperatively and in peace with fellow human beings and the Earth.

Since the beginning of human history, we have lived in communities. That is, however, until the mid-Twentieth century, when cheap fossil fuel energy has enabled many of us in industrialised countries to live more socially dispersed and isolated lives. But now, escalating climate change, peak oil and the need to radically reduce our carbon consumption, dictates that this unsustainable way of life cannot continue. We must relearn the art of community building and conflict resolution."
