Tomorrow Is Too Late : A Youth Manifesto for Climate JusticeMaddrell, Grace More by this author...£12.99
Grace Maddrell was 13 years old when she went on her first school strike against climate change. She has since become a passionate activist for climate justice. In Your Tomorrow is My Yesterday, she collects testimonies of activism and hope from young climate strikers, from Brazil and Burundi to Pakistan and Palestine.
These youth activists are experiencing the reality of the climate crisis, including typhoons, drought, flood, fire, crop failure and ecological degradation, and are all engaged in the struggle to bring these issues to the centre of the world stage. Their strength and determination show the urgency of their cause, and their understanding that the generations above them have failed to safeguard their environment. With contributors aged between eight and twenty-five, this is an inspiring collection of essays from the most vital generation of voices in the global struggle for climate justice, and offers a manifesto for how you can engage, educate, and inspire change for a more hopeful future.
If you are ready to be humbled by the wisdom, wit and sheer conviction of youth climate activists, dive right into this book.’ Kate Raworth, author of Doughnut Economics
‘Being part of this project means telling my story and my demands from the leaders. Every activist has a story to tell, every story has a solution to give and every solution has a life to change.’ Vanessa Nakate, author of A Bigger Picture
‘Grace has eloquently gathered the global anxiety of a generation of young, determined change makers. Armed with science, their intention is a noble one: to make global governments and corporations act now.’ Susie Hewson, founder of Natracare
