Synopsis

Unequal Planet offers young readers a clear, insightful look at Earth's ongoing inequality crisis.

If everyone on Earth was equal, we would have the same standards of living, opportunities, wealth, health and other factors that make our lives different. But this isn't the case, the world is not an equal place and many experience great inequality in their lives.

Unequal Planet looks at the reasons behind global inequality - from where people are born to their individual income to the impacts of climate change, and suggests some positive, practical solutions to this complex and challenging issue. It also explores what we can all do - at a global and an individual level - to help make the world a more equal and better place.

Aimed at readers aged 9 and up.
