"Earth Heroes: Twenty inspiring stories of people saving our world" by Lily Dyu and Jackie Lay (Nosy Crow)

The creative response to the climate crisis has been truly awe-inspiring in 2019. As kids the world over rise up and protest about the mess that grown ups are making of our planet, there are some folk out there who see their point of view perfectly (like us!)

"Earth Heroes" by Lily Dyu and Jackie Lay gathers together 20 inspiring stories of those people - young and old alike.

Built around a core theme that even one person can make a difference, these stories not only highlight the work that these amazing people are doing, but the things we can all do to make a significant change for the better. 

From Greta Thunberg and David Attenborough to Yin Yuzhen and Isatou Ceesay, each tale is a beacon of hope in the fight for the future of our planet.

Be inspired by stories of notable figures such as:

Mohammed Rezwan, architect behind Bangladesh s pioneering floating school scheme

Greta Thunberg, Swedish teen striking to raise awareness of climate change

Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski, Australian inventors of the Seabin

Isatou Ceesay, Gambian innovator turning waste into wealth for her community

Stella McCartney, British designer fighting for sustainable fashion.

and of course Sir David Attenborough, a broadcaster and campaigner for many causes around the preservation of our natural world. 

Sum this book up in a sentence: Another brilliant awe-inspiring book about those standing up to make a difference when it comes to climate change. 

"Earth Heroes" by Lily Dyu and Jackie Lay is out now, published by Nosy Crow (kindly supplied for review).
