Who Cares Wins: Reasons For Optimism in Our Changing World (Hardback)

£20.00
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

"It's a positive, useful book - how to make choices. We need to get governments on board. I wish Lily was world controller" -- Vivienne Westwood, fashion designer and founder of Vivienne Westwood Ltd.



Optimism demands action. Optimism is an active choice. Optimism is not naive and it is not impossible.



Many people perceive this to be a moment of despair. Global warming has reached terrifying heights of severity, human expansion has caused the extinction of countless species and neoliberalism has led to a destructive divide in wealth and a polarization of mainstream politics. But, there are constructive ways to meet these challenges, and there are plenty of reasons for optimism.



Lily Cole has met with some of the millions of people around the world who are working on solutions to our biggest challenges and are committed to creating a more sustainable and peaceful future for humanity. Exploring issues from fast fashion to fast food and renewable energy to gender equality, and embracing debate, the book features interviews with diverse voices from entrepreneurs Stella McCartney and Elon Musk, to activists Extinction Rebellion co-founder Dr Gail Bradbrook and Farhana Yamin, to offer a beacon of possibility in challenging times.



Who Cares Wins is a rousing call to action that will leave you feeling hopeful that we can make a difference. We are the ancestors of our future: a generation that will either be celebrated for its activism or blamed for its apathy. It is for us to choose optimism, to make changes and to create the future we want.

Lily Cole is an environmental activist, model, actress and filmmaker. She holds an MA in history of art from the University of Cambridge, was an affiliate at The Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, and was awarded an honorary Doctor of Letters by the University of Glasgow, for her contribution to humanitarian and environmental causes through social businesses. Lily has spoken at Davos, Google's Zeitgeist conference and Wired. She regularly writes for media including the Guardian, Huffington Post, Vogue and Financial Times. Lily has directed multiple short documentaries. Lily was the Bronte Parsonage Museum's creative partner for 2018, for whom she made her first fiction film.
