The environmental crisis is deeply entangled with colonialism and a capitalist system that places profit over people. Tackling the climate crisis cannot be achieved without an unfiltered examination of exploitation, inequality, poverty and racism.

Named as one of the most influencial women in the UK climate movement, Mikaela Loach offers a fresh perspective on the crisis through the lens of climate justice which creates the real possibility of huge leaps towards racial equality and collective liberation as it aims to dismantle the very foundations of these issues. ‘False hope won’t save us,’ Loach tells us. ‘But active hope can.’ This book is a must read for every climate activist.

 

This book is an inspiring manifesto from Global Optimism Co-Founders, Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac. It begins by painting two futuristic scenarios: the first is the path we are on if we don’t put an urgent end to fossil fuels, and the second scenario is the future we could have.

Practical, optimistic and empowering, this book shows us a world we can all be a part of creating. This is the most important decade we have ever faced, and The Future We Choose shows how we can move beyond the climate crisis into a thriving future.
