Deep Adaptation: Navigating the Realities of Climate Chaos

Jem Bendell and Rupert Read

Deep Adaptation discusses the changes that may help us prepare for climate-influenced societal collapse. Writers from fields such as philosophy, psychology, education, leadership, facilitation, community development and private enterprise show the creative ways in which people are responding to this difficult realisation. Edited by the originator of the concept, Professor Jem Bendell, and a leading figure in climate activism, Professor Rupert Read, it brings together scholarship and practical measures for policy and action.

Letters to the Earth: Writing to a Planet in Crisis

Jackie Morris (illustrator)

Gathering more than 100 letters written in response to the climate emergency, each gives language to the unspeakable and shows how our collective power is present when we listen to each other. These letters are an opportunity to reflect on our connection to the planet and each other in times of crisis.

Includes contributions from activist Yoko Ono, actor Mark Rylance, poet Kate Tempest, novelist Anna Hope, environmental writer Jay Griffiths, Green Party MP Caroline Lucas, Booker Prize-winning author Ben Okri and actor Freya Mavor.

The Future We Choose

Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac

Humanity is not doomed, and we can and will survive. The future is ours to create, and will be shaped by the people we choose to be in the coming years. This book is a passionate call to arms from Christiana Figueres, former UN Executive Secretary for Climate Change, and Tom Rivett-Carnac, senior political strategist for the Paris Agreement. Practical, optimistic and empowering, it shows us steps we can all take to renew our planet and create a better world beyond the climate crisis.
