Our World to Change!

Edited by Ruedi Baur.

Our World to Change!

To explain the desperate state of our world, its functioning and malfunctioning, is the ambitious goal of this book by Ruedi and Vera Baur. To achieve this goal they have joined forces with the globalization- critical organization Attac, which has provided them with the data. The publication is a formal homage to the sociologist Otto Neurath and the graphic designer Gerd Arntz, who created the Isotype (International Education System by Typographical Images) in the 1920s. Ruedi and Vera Baur also recycled a figurine system originally developed for Manifesta 11, the European Biennial for Contemporary Art in Zurich. Our World to Change! not only explains figures related to economics, finance, ecology, nutrition, and immigration, but also presents suggestions and alternatives from specialists in these fields and from Attac. Visually deciphering the functions of our world system helps to show that another world is possible and necessary.

FROM THE BOOK
Excerpt

“Every day the television news brings us another round of bad news. Record global temperatures and social inequality, wars and extinctions of species, cyclones and financial crises, unemployment and floods, elections won by demagogical and brutal politicians... We feel powerless; it is very tempting to give up on trying to change the situation, and to look inward, to our family, clan, tribe.

Yet society is fizzing with positive energy and creativity. Everywhere thousands of citizens' initiatives are reinventing food supplies, housing, transport, culture, democracy.

Everywhere collaborative practices and sharing are emerging, offering a glimpse of a future with much kinder, more sustainable and egalitarian lifestyles. We see unprecedentedly forceful demands, rooted in the hearts and minds of people all over the world, to be able to live healthy lives and equally clear aspirations to create democratic cities.

Racist and sexist projects cooked up by the authoritarian right-wing do not offer
any solution for the sufferings
of ordinary people. If such regressive visions seem so
seductive, isn't this because the left is incapable of sketching out a new alternative to the "American dream" of consumerism and growth?

We all know that the way the world is organized at present means we are heading for catastrophe, but can we manage to desire a different world and invent it together? This is the perspective Attac and Civic City adopt in sketching out credible and appealing alternative scenarios. But, dear readers, these scenarios can only become reality if we all take action together, in the squares and streets of our cities, in the places where we work and study, on social media... Starting from our own neighborhood, our company, our association, and growing to encompass social forums and international meetings, moving from the local to the global, we have the power to shape our future.

Let's seize that power!”
