‘Lorna Gold has given all of herself to this small book. She takes us on an anguished, unflinching look into the heart of the climate crisis, and emerges emboldened – with a radical, utterly convincing hope that we can spring into action to protect the future of everything, and everyone, we love most.’ - Naomi Klein, author of No Is Not Enough and This Changes Everything
‘We need more compelling narratives on climate change so that people are encouraged to make it a personal issue in their lives. This compelling personal story of a mother and activist makes that emotional connection very well, as she wakes up to the danger her children are in and connects the dots on how to safeguard their future.’ - Mary Robinson, President, Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice

In Climate Generation: Awakening to Our Children’s Future environmentalist Lorna Gold issues a clarion call to take immediate action on climate or risk bequeathing a stark legacy to future generations.
Lorna shares her personal journey in coming to understand what ‘climate change’ means to her both as an activist and as a mother who is fearful for her children’s prospects in a world that hovers on the brink of destruction.
Rather than simply lament the grave situation facing our planet, however, Climate Generation offers the reader hope and a manifesto for change. Lorna shows readers how, by making comparatively modest changes in our day-to-day lives, we can play our part in transforming the world around us, while also explaining how we can call on the political elite to embrace policies that will bring about real and meaningful reforms.
Climate Generation is an impassioned plea to parents, grandparents and all who care about our planet to act now in creating a world where children come first.
