Publisher Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • Provocative and illuminating essays from women at the forefront of the climate movement who are harnessing truth, courage, and solutions to lead humanity forward.

“A powerful read that fills one with, dare I say . . . hope?”—The New York Times

 
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE

There is a renaissance blooming in the climate movement: leadership that is more characteristically feminine and more faithfully feminist, rooted in compassion, connection, creativity, and collaboration. While it’s clear that women and girls are vital voices and agents of change for this planet, they are too often missing from the proverbial table. More than a problem of bias, it’s a dynamic that sets us up for failure. To change everything, we need everyone.
 
All We Can Save illuminates the expertise and insights of dozens of diverse women leading on climate in the United States—scientists, journalists, farmers, lawyers, teachers, activists, innovators, wonks, and designers, across generations, geographies, and race—and aims to advance a more representative, nuanced, and solution-oriented public conversation on the climate crisis. These women offer a spectrum of ideas and insights for how we can rapidly, radically reshape society.
 
Intermixing essays with poetry and art, this book is both a balm and a guide for knowing and holding what has been done to the world, while bolstering our resolve never to give up on one another or our collective future. We must summon truth, courage, and solutions to turn away from the brink and toward life-giving possibility. Curated by two climate leaders, the book is a collection and celebration of visionaries who are leading us on a path toward all we can save.

“4.5 rounded up. Great to amplify and keep this conversation going. -1/2 star for repetitiveness +1/2 star for new facts I learned Very important read here folks and love that it lays it on the line how important women’s voices are in the fight for our planet.”
“This book is amazing!! I absolutely adored it. The poetry was beautiful and such an artistic way to break up the essays, which are surprisingly beautiful as well. I read it as part of a book club, which I strongly recommend if one is available to you/you can start one. I was afraid to read this book, expecting to feel overwhelmed by the climate crisis. Instead, I feel motivated and inspired.”
“How refreshing to hear opinions from multiple different perspectives than normal! All We Can Save offers many fresh outlooks on climate change, how we can acknowledge it without dreading the future, and what we can do to help.”
