Read the incredible stories and hear the dreams of 30 young Indigenous people and People of Colour protecting the planet
Indigenous people and people of colour are disproportionately affected by climate change, yet often aren’t heard in global conversations. In this book, British—Bangladeshi environmentalist and race activist 'Birdgirl' Mya-Rose Craig speaks to campaigners from around the world about what needs to be done. From wildlife conservation to clean water, air pollution to plastic waste, climate justice to climate strikes, the time has come to listen to a generation of young people of colour demanding urgent change for the world they will inherit.
