Description

"Xiuhtezcatl Martinez and his group, the Earth Guardians, believe that today's youth will play an important role in shaping our future. They know that the choices made right now will have a lasting impact on the world of tomorrow, and people young and old are asking themselves what they can do to ensure a positive, just, and sustainable future. We Rise tells the story of the environmental crisis we face and offers solutions to change our course in history. Beginning with the empowering story of the Earth Guardians and how Xiuhtezcatl has become a voice for his generation, We Rise explores many aspects of effective activism and provides step-by-step information on how to start and join solution-oriented movements. With conversations between Xiuhtezcatl and well-known activists, revolutionaries, and celebrities; practical advice for living a more sustainable lifestyle; and ideas and tools for building resilient communities, We Rise is an action guide on how to face the biggest problems of today, including climate change, fossil fuel extraction, and industrial agriculture. We Rise will give you the inspiration and information you need to do you part in making the world a better place and leave you asking: What kind of legacy do I want to leave?" --
