Books Official Stockist

The defining book on the climate crisis that shows us how we can and will survive.

The Future We Choose is a passionate call to arms, written by former UN Secretary for Climate Christiana Figures and Tom Rivett-Carnac, her UN political strategist. They 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.

"We are at a critical moment for the survival of humans and the rest of life on Earth. In The Future We Choose, Figueres and Rivett-Carnac explain what we can do to safeguard our world. This book presents what we must do to protect our shared future - your own, and that of everyone on this planet." -Leonardo DiCaprio 
"The Paris Agreement was a landmark for humanity. In this timely and important book, two of the principle creators of that agreement show us why and how we can now realise its' promise. I hope it is widely read and acted on." -Jane Goodall, PhD, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace
"This book is what the moment demands: a handbook for climate action and optimism. Read it and act." -Ed Miliband 
"Compelling and persuasive. Everyone can make a difference when it comes to climate change, but far too often most of us end up feeling that the things we do are not going to be enough to solve the problem: it just seems so overwhelming. After you've read this book it will be very difficult to ever feel like that again!"- Stella McCartney
"A call to arms for the battle of our time." - Arnold Schwarzenegger 
"There could not be a more important book." - Richard Branson 
"Full of heart, strength and solutions... I will carry it with me everywhere."- Ellie Goulding 
"This book could not be more timely or important." - David Miliband, CEO, IRC & Former Foreign Secretary 
"I urge everyone to read it and heed its message." - Ban Ki-moon 
"I strongly recommend this enlightening book! The next few years are the most important in humanity's fight to solve the climate crisis. In The Future We Choose, Christiana and Tom show us what's to come, how to face it, and what can be done to make the right choice to save our planet for future generations."- Al Gore
