We cannot save the planet without uplifting the voices of its people – especially those most often unheard. Leah Thomas coined the term ‚intersectional environmentalism‘ to describe the inextricable link between climate change, activism, racism and privilege. The fight for the planet should go hand in hand with the fight for civil rights. In fact, one cannot exist without the other. This book is a call to action, a guide to instigating change for all and a pledge to work toward the empowerment of all people and the betterment of the planet – an indispensable primer for activists looking to create meaningful, inclusive and sustainable change. Driven by Leah’s expert voice and complemented by the words of young activists from around the globe, it is essential reading on the issue – and the movement – that will define a generation.
