Emma Watson's Books on Climate Change


View Linked Books

In case you've spotted murmurs about this online, we thought we'd make it easier for you to find it!

During COP26 in Glasgow, actor and UN Women’s Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson hid more than 40 books around Glasgow for people to find. These are some of the books which were spotted around the city as part of the campaign #COPBookFairies, as published on weforum.org

There's plenty of climate reading highlighted on our website. If you're after books which explicitly connect climate to the social justice issues which created and fuel the climate crisis, here are a few of our lists for browsing:

Language and Ecological Crises

On the Dangers of Overpopulation Myths

Jess's article on fighting nihilism, Always Ask: Too Late for What?

Our collaboration with Take One Action film festivals on their film 'Living Proof'

At this year's Radical Book Fair, we also featured a host of events championing an intersectional view of the climate crisis, with care and justice at their heart, including 'Climate Collapse and Imagination' and 'Organising for a Planet on Fire' These events are available to watch following the links!

Most importantly, perhaps (and because as we all know, COP26 was a failure when it comes to protecting those most vulnerable), these are a few groups currently doing fantastic work. One of them might just be your new activist home!

Climate Action Scotland
