Overview

The Outdoor Citizen: Get Out, Give Back, Get Active by John Judge

A groundbreaking volume from the president and CEO of the Appalachian Mountain Club makes the profound argument that to preserve the environment, a revolution must take place in which every person becomes a champion for nature and the outdoors.

In The Outdoor Citizen , John Judge coins the term “the outdoor citizen” delivering his remarkably persuasive argument that we must all become citizens of the natural world, owning and instilling in the next generation a keen interest in the outdoors and reconnecting with life’s most essential foundation: nature. Where Michael Bloomberg left us in Climate of Hope , Judge picks up and provides practical advice in an upbeat and optimistic call to action.

Over the next quarter century more than three billion people will join the middle class in the developing world at a rate of 140 to 170 million annually. This new group of consumers will demand more goods and services and use prodigious amounts of energy. This could lead to a ten-fold increase in carbon emissions and devastating, irreversible effects on the earth. Through The Outdoor Citizen , there is, at last, an easy-to-follow plan for all people to contribute to the cause of preserving the environment. It is also a call to action to commit to an active outdoor lifestyle and make the outdoors an epicenter for our communities. It is a game-changer for saving our environment and an entrypoint into a world of healthier and happier people.

The Appalachian Mountain Club is America’s oldest outdoor recreation and conservation organization, with local chapters covering Virginia to Maine and operating the legendary White Mountain Lodges & Huts.
