Description

A call to action from one of ‘the UK’s most impressive young activists.’ (The Times)

The main concern of young people is climate change and how to combat it. This is the only official handbook from Extinction Rebellion Youth and will help you to change your life and change the world for the better.

Written by activist and founder member of Extinction Rebellion Youth London, this is no greenwashing book – it's an important call to action. A manifesto for how young people can help to save the planet by questioning everything about modern life and acting upon their conclusions.

This book will ask you to challenge everything – challenge government (protest and take peaceful action where necessary), challenge business (decide who you want to support, decide who you want to boycott), and above all to challenge yourself – how can you change your life to make a difference.

Filled with stories, essays, slogans and inspiring illustrations, this book will cover consuming, actioning, boycotting, campaigning, striking, questioning, rewilding and reconnecting with our planet.

Featured Reviews

Challenge Everything: An Extinction Rebellion Youth Guide to Saving the Planet is an interesting read for any age who is looking to find out more about Extinction Rebellion and the cause they are trying to make people aware of. It's a thought provoking read.

An excellent introduction to climate activism for teenagers and young adults, and a compelling call to arms. The section laying out some aspects of the crisis were brief, focusing more on personal actions than either the science or the systemic change needed to prevent catastrophe. But that is widely available elsewhere. And it is more than made up for here by excellent sections on being ready to deal with deniers and on morality - the importance of personal moral codes and the morality of non-violent direct action.

I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is a fantastic introduction to climate activism for young adults. Clear and easy to follow, and a quick read! It doesn't gloss over topics, and is neither over-simplified or over-complicated. They're nice and handy guides and can inspire the younger generations to make changes in their lives.
