‘He is by popular consent the most effective of Britain’s eco-warriors’
– The Independent

Join celebrated environmentalist and sustainability advisor Dr Tony Juniper as he explores just how we’ve changed our planet, and what we can do – now – to soften our impact. Understand the science that explains what pressure Earth is under, and how to take action…

In The Science of our Changing Planet, Tony Juniper explains the science behind climate change, overpopulation, over-consumption, pandemics, and other factors that threaten life on Earth. Shedding light on how we’ve come to rapidly approach the point of no return, he offers ideas on environmental conservation and how to use green technology to save the planet. Looking at how we can live more sustainably he brings positive ideas on how we can alleviate past and present damage to the Earth – and restore its future.

Note: Tony Juniper will be appearing virtually at this event, and you can join us in-store (where signed books will be available for purchase) or by livestream.
