Watch a live-streamed evening with Greta Thunberg for the global launch of The Climate Book.

The Climate Book brings together an unprecedented collective of over 100 experts, activists and witnesses to tell the biggest story in the world: how and why our planet is changing.

It is a clarion call to create change. It presents a global overview of the many, interconnected crises unfolding across the planet today, and reveals the part we can all play in securing a safe future for life on Earth.

The book contains testimonies from scientists and engineers, youth leaders and indigenous communities, national and international thinkers, and the voices of the most affected people and areas on the front line of climate change.

The Climate Book features renowned scientists such as Johan Rockström, Michael Mann, Katherine Hayhoe, Friedrike Otto, Stefan Rahmstorf, Saleemul Huq and Carlos Nobre, as well as luminaries like Thomas Piketty, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Naomi Klein and Amitav Ghosh.

These are stories to inspire hope through action in the urgent fight for the wellbeing of this planet. After all, if a schoolchild's strike could ignite a global protest, what could we all do collectively if we tried?

In this launch event, Greta Thunberg is in conversation with journalist, writer and broadcaster Samira Ahmed.

Presented in partnership with Penguin Live
