Lessons in Resistance from Young Activists

Donna Sinclair

ISBN: 978-1-77343-293-9


A powerful and inspiring portrait of a hope-filled movement trying to change the world for the better.

This book provides ideas and tools young activists can use as they work to save what they care about most. It also contains lots of expert tips and advice from young and old activists who are showing the way, such as: Nahira Gerster-Sim, Hannah Bywater, Simon Jackson, Greta Thunberg, Shannen Koostachin, Kile George, Kaiden Peldjak, Robin Wall Kimmerer, and Sophia Mathur.

Saving the Future contains lessons on how to save the future – get as much political power as you can, defend your rights, choose solidarity, defend the sacred, care for the vulnerable, speak only truthful words, equip yourself to lead, and more – as told by young activists who are busy trying to do these things. It tells the stories of their efforts without attempting to place the weight of saving the world on the shoulders of young people today. For example, Nahira Gerster-Sim is working to help make it so that 16-year-olds will be able to vote. Hannah Bywater and Simon Jackson are fighting for vulnerable and endangered animals. Kaiden Peldjak and Kile George are denouncing racism.
