A Short, Hopeful Guide to Climate Change

Author Oisín McGann explains Climate Change science, and encourages young people to be part of positive change by getting involved in the global movement to fight humanity’s biggest challenge. Published in collaboration with Friends of the Earth Ireland, this might be the most eco-friendly children’s book ever published! Vegan inks, and fully recyclable: this book is part of the solution.
