Sustain What? Sick of ‘Predatory Delay’ on Climate? Snap Forward with Alex Steffen
Join Columbia’s Andy Revkin in a deep dive into the world of Alex Steffen, a 20-year veteran campaigner for the right to a thriving future for all.
In 2008, Steffen edited World Changing, a bestselling catalog of ideas, designs and case studies illustrating what a just, sustainable human journey can look like.
The futurist and system-focused analyst is now working on a book called The Snap Forward – charting paths past what Steffen calls “predatory delay” and toward a safer relationship with climate and energy.

As Revkin wrote in 2011, "If I had to label Steffen, I’d call him the “designing optimist,” placing him somewhere in the general vicinity (but a bit to the left) of the “despairing optimist,” René Dubos, and “The Rational Optimist,” Matt Ridley.
