Harmony book launch
Thursday 22 October 2020
The Sophia Centre Press, in partnership with the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and the Sustainable Food Trust, is proud to announce the publication of The Harmony Debates: Exploring a practical philosophy for a sustainable future.
We will be holding a grand zoom launch at 6.00 PM British Summer Time on Thursday 22 October 2020
The book explores the concept of Harmony, the notion that all things are interconnected and ideally exist in a state of balance: the word Harmony appears in the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development no less than three times, yet with no definition. This anthology gathers together an interdisciplinary array of experts, academics and practitioners, from agriculture, the arts, business, and environmental and community activism, to explore what Harmony means and how we can use it. How do we conduct business, educate children, conduct business, protect the environment, resolve conflict and promote health and well-being in a world in which all things are fundamentally connected?
The notion of harmony stretches back to the Greek philosophers, who believed that the entire universe is a single integrated whole. Ideas of universal balance and the interconnectedness of all things are also found in the great religions of China and India, as well as indigenous cultures and modern physics.
The Harmony Debates contains 43 chapters by 47authors from diverse backgrounds, including John Sauven, head of Greenpeace UK, the scientist Rupert Sheldrake, Dame Ellen MacArthur, and the composer Sir John Eliot Gardiner.
This volume was inspired by the 2010 book Harmony: A New Way of Looking at our World, written by HRH The Prince of Wales, the environmentalist Tony Juniper and the broadcaster Ian Skelly.
Register for the launch here.
You will be sent the link on 21 October.
