From peaceful protest to business boycotts and fundamental lifestyle changes, this is an essential guide to tackling climate change and changing the world forever courtesy of Extinction Rebellion Youth.
Challenge Everything. Act Now. Change the World. This book will show you how.
Blue Sandford was named by The Times as one of "Britain's Greta Thunbergs" (Dec 2019)
The main concern of young people is climate change and how to combat it. This book, the only official handbook from Extinction Rebellion Youth, will help you to change your life and change the world for the better. Written by a founder member of Extinction Rebellion Youth London, this is no greenwashing book - it's an important call to action. A manifesto to show young people how to save the planet by questioning modern life.
This book asks you to challenge everything - challenge government (protest and take peaceful action where necessary), challenge business (decide who you want to support, decide who you want to boycott), and above all to challenge yourself - how can you change your life to make a difference. Filled with stories, essays, slogans and inspiring illustrations, this book covers consuming, actioning, boycotting, campaigning, striking, questioning, rewilding and reconnecting with our planet.
