How You Can Save the Planet



YOU have the power to change the world!

*Foreword by Robert Macfarlane bestselling author of The Lost Words*

Climate breakdown, species extinction, environmental disasters - we know the planet is heating up and running out of time; but what can we do about it?

Lots of things actually like:
· Building a green wall
· Making recycled bird feeders
· Rewilding
· Writing letters to politicians
· Organising cycling groups at school
· And so much more!

This book will break down exactly what you need to do to make a difference.

With easy step-by-step actions and inspiring stories of other children who stood up and said 'no more', this is the definitive guide to creating a better world wherever you live.

This wonderful book is a mixture of a manifesto and an operations manual for how to make Natural History. Every young person in the country should be given this book: it is life affirming and brilliantly practical. It is a roadmap for protecting the fragile planet on which we live

Without action, hope is fantasy. But mix the right amount of hope with action, then double both, and you can change the world. Hendrikus van Hensbergen shows us how to do it, starting now, in his fine new book
