In the foreword, Prince William encourages young people to think optimistically about the future of our planet. He writes:

“The world we live in today can feel overwhelming but the biggest challenge we face will be making sure we support and celebrate the wins for our planet, large or small, that can make a difference for everyone’s future.”

The book, which follows on from the non-fiction book Earthshot: How to Save Our Planet and was released in 2021, is full of simple practical things young people can do or make to help save the planet as well as big ideas and contributions from people around the globe.

Young readers will meet Earthshot innovators, entrepreneurs and game changers from the past and present and travel around the world, celebrating the diverse and rich habitats, amazing animals and wonderful landscapes that make up our planet.

With contributions from HRH Prince William, Naturalist Sir David Attenborough, Former UN Climate Chief Christiana Figueres, Actor Shailene Woodley, Astronaut Naoko Yamazaki, Environmental Activist Hindou Oumarou Ibrahim and more, the book inspires children to dream up ways to build, create and shout about solutions to repair our planet.
