When faced with climate change, the biggest threat that our planet has ever confronted, it's easy to feel as if nothing you do can really make a difference . . . but this book proves that individual people can change the world. With twenty inspirational stories celebrating the pioneering work of a selection of Earth Heroes from all around the globe, from Greta Thunberg and David Attenborough to Yin Yuzhen and Isatou Ceesay, each tale is a beacon of hope in the fight for the future of our planet, proving that one person, no matter how small, can make a difference.

Featuring striking illustrations by Jackie Lay, Earth Heroes contains twenty stories, including the following: Mohammed Rezwan, architect behind Bangladesh's pioneering floating school scheme; Greta Thunberg, Swedish teen striking to raise awareness of climate change; Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski, Australian inventors of the Seabin; Isatou Ceesay, Gambian innovator turning waste into wealth for her community and Stella McCartney, British designer fighting for sustainable fashion.

"If you want to know what to do in the face of the crisis, read this book! It's full of inspiring ideas" - Emma Thompson
