We’re in the midst of a climate crisis, so what can we do to ensure our survival?
If ever there was a definitive book on how humanity can and will survive the climate crisis, The Future We Choose is it.
How we address the Earth’s changing climate in the next 30 years will determine not only the world we live in but the world we will pass on to our children and theirs.
The Future We Chose presents what we must do to protect our shared future – your own, and that of everyone on this planet.Leonardo DiCaprio, Actor and Environmental Activist
I strongly recommend this enlightening book! The next few years are the most important in humanity’s fight to solve the climate crisis.

Christiana Figueres is an internationally recognised leader on global climate change. As the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change from 2010–2016, she oversaw the delivery of the historic Paris Agreement of 2015. Co-author of the book is Tom Rivett-Carnac, who was Christiana’s political strategist. Since then, together Tom and Christiana founded Global Optimism, a purpose driven enterprise focused on social and environmental change, under which run various initiatives including the podcast Outrage and Optimism.
In The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis, Figueres explains that we still have the opportunity to not only protect ourselves and the future generations, but actually create a much better world for us all.
‘The Paris Agreement was a landmark for humanity. In this timely and important book, two of the principle creators of that agreement show us why and how we can now realise its’ promise. I hope it is widely read and acted on.‘The Paris Agreement was a landmark for humanity.
