In How to Change Everything: A Handbook for Young Climate and Justice Warriors, Naomi Klein, with Rebecca Stefoff, provide inspiration, ideas, and tools for action for young people in the fight to protect our planet and win climate justice.

A movement is under way to fight climate change while also making a fair and livable future possible for everyone, including kids and their families who are being hurt and neglected right now. Young people are not just part of that movement. They are leading the way.

In this information-packed, practical handbook, Klein reveals where we are, how we got here, and what happens next. Introducing us to young activists from all over the world, How to Change Everything counters the dual fires of climate change and rising fascism with the fire in the belly of the new generation of young activists. The more sparks this fire has, the brighter it will burn, says Klein, inviting readers to add their spark, and asking “are you ready to change everything?
