PUBLISHING
 

 
  Book   A Tale of the Future

The book is based upon a year and one half study of the future by 26 young Swedish people between the ages of 20 and 27 years old.
   It is written as a story of a desirable future which takes place in the year 2021. While definitely not a novel, this social science fiction does have a story line and follows two characters. Sara and Axel's lives come together in their work. Sara represents the age and experience the books creators will be in the year 2021. Axel is the same age in the story as the "Future Builders" were at the time of the book's origin.

 
      The books youthful originators intended the book to: 
  • stimulate discussion on the kind of future we want
  • influence decision making toward a sustainable society
  • involve a wide range of readers by providing story based
    material for school groups (ages 12 to adults), study circles,
    book discussion groups etc.
