Description

Sustainable Planet gives young readers a clear, insightful introduction to Earth's sustainability crisisSustainability is defined as 'development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs'.

In the simplest terms, sustainability is about children and the world we will leave them. Earth is uniquely able to sustain life. Yet we are stripping it of its natural resources, polluting its land and waters and heating its atmosphere, with terrifying consequences.

A more sustainable world is urgently needed - now. Sustainable Planet takes a non-alarmist, but truthful, look at the issue of sustainability and suggests ways we can all live in a more planet-friendly way, from global changes such as investing in renewable energy sources and carbon offsetting, to individual actions such as eating less meat and fish and avoiding plastic packaging that will empower young readers. Following on from the successful Plastic Planet, Hot Planet and Recycled Planet, Sustainable Planet is written by the award-winning science author Anna Claybourne.
