    The Future We Choose: The Stubborn Optimist's Guide to the Climate Crisis

    £9.99
    Recommended by Genevieve Fay, our Communities Programme Officer:

    This book packs a lot into 186 pages: part manifesto, part call to arms, part essential handbook to navigating the climate crisis.

    Co-authored by two key architects of the 2015 UN Paris Agreement, it imagines what will happen if we meet the terms of that agreement by 2050, and what will happen if we don’t. There’s an urgency about it, but also an unshakable optimism underpinning the practical, manageable advice the authors give.

    It reminds us that hope is a radical political act, and one we particularly need in times of crisis and uncertainty.

    Practical, optimistic and empowering, The Future We Choose shows us steps we can all take to renew our planet and create a better world beyond the climate crisis: today, tomorrow, this year and in the coming decade.

    The time to act is now. This book will change the way you see the world, and your place in it.
