NEW BOOK – Planet on Fire: A Manifesto for the Age of Environmental Breakdown
Planet on Fire is an urgent manifesto for a reimagining of our economic system. It offers a clear and practical road map for a future that is more democratic and sustainable by design. Mathew Lawrence and Laurie Laybourn-Langton argue that it is not enough just to spend and innovate our way out of the crisis; we must also rapidly reshape the economy to create a new way of life that can foster a healthy and flourishing environment for all.
