Welcome to Green Frigate

Titles published under the Green Frigate Books imprint aim to explore the horizons of the natural and built environments, and the relations of humans within them. The goal of the imprint is to reach its readership by producing works that fall in the cracks between those offered by traditional academic and popular presses. Specific categories include ‘Design, Interiors and Architecture’ and ‘The natural and built environments’. In common with Libri Books, the imprint should be of interest particularly for members of ‘communities of practice’ in the natural and built environments.

Conscious Endeavors

Written by one of Canada’s most experienced sustainability strategists, Conscious Endeavors gathers together essays and speeches that collectively serve as a compass to guide business and other key stakeholders toward a relationship with the Earth, and with each other, that is more sustainable than our current societal trajectory. Organized into four sections – origins, homage, reflection, renewal – the book also includes very personal observations by Abbott at the beginning of each section that explain his personal connection to the land. Taking its title from Thoreau’s observation that humans can elevate themselves, and those around them, by conscious endeavor, this is a brave book that inspires us all to affect the quality of our days – to make the world, and each other, better.
