2040 : A Handbook for the Regeneration - Damon Gameau

Like most of us, Damon Gameau has spent most of his adult years overwhelmed into inaction by the problem of climate change and its devastating effects on the planet. But when Damon became a father, he knew he couldn't continue to look away. So he decided to do what he does best, and tell a story. And the story became an imagining of what the world could look like in 2040, if we all decided to start doing things differently, right now. The result is the era-defining documentary called 2040. Its a meticulously researched plea for the adoption of community-building, energy-generating, connection-forging, forest-renewing and ocean-replenishing. Science says these measures will reset our planet's health, drive our economies and improve lives across the globe.

2040 - A Handbook for the Regeneration details how we can stitch this magnificent vision into everyday life by engaging in activities such as cooking, shopping, gardening, sharing, working and teaching our kids. Climate change is a practical problem that can be tackled by each of us, one small step at a time, and that we can make a genuine difference - if we know what to do. Brimming with practical wisdom and 50 delicious recipes, 2040: A Handbook for the Regeneration empowers us to become the change we want to see in the world.
