Its Earth Day Monday 22nd and to celebrate we’ve selected our twenty favourite, most appropriate, most thought-provoking and compelling reads to get in the mood. These stories are from all over the world – from wolves at the door in Czech to spiders on the arm in north west Ireland.
We have selected stories that make the case for bringing nature into farming systems and our lives, stories that grapple with big global issues like palm oil or biodiversity loss in a new way, or that show otherwise under-reported progress in the sometimes dull but always important world of environmental policy change. How do we think about and describe nature – a.k.a. the living world? How do we react to ecological loss? And how do we mobilise to deal with these realities? From rewilding to climate change, pesticides bans to the role of livestock in climate-friendly farming, and a gripping personal account of front line action in the Paris COP 21 climate change talks….it’s all here!
