Alan AtKisson

Alan AtKisson was formerly the editor of the pioneering sustainability journal “In Context.” He is now a consultant with a small firm that has advised dozens of cities, companies, foundations, and non-profits on developing large-scale sustainability initiatives. He’s also a writer and a musician – his book “Believing Cassandra: An Optimist Looks at a Pessimist’s World” was a bestseller in the environment category on Amazon.com for 1999, after only four months in release. He travels frequently, aiming to “accelerate sustainable development,” and divides his home between Seattle and New York.
