      Bio
      Hendrikus van Hensbergen has a BSc in Zoology from the University of Bristol, where he was awarded the Rose Bracher Memorial Prize, and an MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation & Management from the University of Oxford.

      He is the CEO of youth environmental charity, Action for Conservation (AFC), which he founded in 2014, whilst working for WWF, after realising that no charities in the UK existed with the sole purpose of engaging young people in environmental action. In a short space of time the charity has become an influential force, driving greater action to engage and involve young people across the environmental sector. In 2018 Hendrikus’ inspirational leadership was recognised with a Postcode Trust Rising Star Award and in 2019 the charity launched the world’s largest youth-led nature restoration initiative in Wales.

      Robert Macfarlane is the bestselling author of Mountains of the Mind, The Wild Places, The Old Ways, Landmarks, and Underland, and co-creator of The Lost Words and The Lost Spells. Mountains of the Mind won the Guardian First Book Award and the Somerset Maugham Award and The Wild Places won the Boardman-Tasker Award. Both books have been adapted for television by the BBC. The Lost Words won the Books Are My Bag Beautiful Book Award and the Hay Festival Book of the Year. Robert Macfarlane is a Fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge, and writes on environmentalism, literature and travel for publications including the Guardian, the Sunday Times and The New York Times. He is now working on his third book with long-time collaborator, Jackie Morris: The Book of Birds.

      Reviews
      An excellent down-to-earth handbook for teens and pre-teens—Patrick Barkham, Guardian

      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—Sir Tim Smit, Founder of the Eden Project

      A really informative book for young people about how to become an environmental activist, with lots of fun ways to take practical action. I totally agree with the message: We all have the power to make a difference and help the planet!—Mya-Rose Craig (Birdgirl), environmental and climate activist

      What’s so clever about this book is that it manages to combine being practical and informative with great story telling. It’s enlightening, inspiring and empowering - a book for anyone of any age. I’m going to give it to everyone I know!—Kate Humble, TV presenter

      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—Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods and Vitamin N

      A wonderfully informative, fun and practical book that highlights the most important fact - That small individual acts of kindness towards our planet, will make a great difference. A great source of inspiration—Harry and David Rich, TV presenters

      Straight talking advice on how to identify goals and realise them—Claire Allfree, Evening Standard

      A treasure trove of practical advice and inspiration —Sue Stuart-Smith, author of The Well Gardened Mind
