Review of Andres Edwards’ Thriving Beyond Sustainability – by Rick Medrick

SPIRALS: a new set of strategies, involving initiatives that are: Scalable, Place-making, Intergenerational, Resilient, Accessible, Life-affirming, and Self-care. The content of this volume explores these characteristics in detail under the context of striving for thrivability and not just sustainability.
