Summary
  • Inspiring true stories about champions of climate change action - twelve ordinary people willing to do extraordinary things to help save the planet for future generations
  • Guarding Eden tells the personal stories of twelve ordinary people who were so concerned about climate change that they altered their lives to do something about it. Some did quiet backroom work in research, drafted submissions or wrote to politicians; others decided to go public, really public - one was part of the team occupying a 160-metre power-plant chimney, one went on a hunger strike publicised around the world, another helped organise 1500 people to make a giant human sign on a beach. They come from all walks of life: there's a nurse, an engineer, a musician, an insurance broker, a teacher, a lawyer, a vet. Surprisingly touching, Guarding Eden makes an issue as complex and controversial as climate change feel human and deeply real
