YOU have the power to change the world!

’Every young person in the country should be given this book’ Sir Tim Smit, Founder of The Eden Project

’A really informative book […] with lots of fun ways to take practical action’ Mya-Rose Craig (Birdgirl), environmental and climate activist

Climate breakdown, species extinction, environmental disasters - we know the planet is heating up and running out of time; but what can we do about it?

Lots of things actually like:
· Building a green wall
· Making recycled bird feeders
· Rewilding
· Writing letters to politicians
· Setting up a swapshop
· Organising cycling groups at school
· And so much more!

This book will break down exactly what you need to do to make a difference.

With easy step-by-step actions and inspiring stories of other children who stood up and said ’no more’, this is the definitive guide to creating a better world wherever you live.

’It’s enlightening, inspiring and empowering’ Kate Humble, TV presenter

’Wonderfully informative, fun and practical […] A great source of inspiration’ The Rich Brothers, TV presenters

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 author of Mountains of the Mind, The Wild Places, The Old Ways, Landmarks, and The Lost Words, co-created with Jackie Morris. 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. He 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.
