Building on the two-hundred-year-old tradition of the Bonnier publishing group in Sweden, Manilla Press is a publishing space for writing that speaks to our times. Our reach is international, our range broad, we publish with focus, passion and conviction, and we seek to find and publish underrepresented voices.
The Future We Choose is a passionate call to arms, written by former UN Secretary for Climate Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac, her UN political strategist. Figueres and Rivett-Carnac outline two scenarios for our future: how life on Earth will be by 2050 if we fail to meet the Paris Agreement climate targets; or how it will look and feel to live in a carbon neutral, regenerative world. Each of us must confront the crisis head on, with determination and optimism.
Practical and empowering, The Future We Choose features ten things we can do today to make a difference. The Future We Choose is for all of us, teenagers to adults, who feel powerless to stop the climate emergency. This is the final hour: it can be our finest hour. We can solve our climate emergency, but we must act now.
