We know there’s a climate emergency but what does that mean we should do? What does a ‘better future’ look like and how do we get there? Having spent over a decade on the frontlines of climate activism — organising, campaigning, and holding the powerful to account — Tamsin Omond discovered first-hand that this crisis is too big for one group of activists to solve. It needs everyone.

About the Author -
Since dropping banners against Heathrow Airport’s third runway from the roof of the Houses of Parliament, Tamsin has consistently shifted public conversation on the climate and ecological emergency. A founding member of Extinction Rebellion, they have organised (and been arrested for) a number of high-profile protests, co-founded a Suffragette-inspired environmental group called Climate Rush, formed ‘The Commons’ political party, co-ordinated (the successful) Save England’s Forests coalition, and led global corporate campaigns as Head of Global Campaigns at Lush Cosmetics. Tamsin is active in queer uprising, a theatre maker, and the author of RUSH! The Making of a Climate Activist (Marion Boyars, 2009). They are currently running as co-leader of the Green Party.
The Do Book Company is an independent publishing house based in Shoreditch, London, producing inspirational guidebooks.
Each book is fairly short, about 100 pages, as it focuses on the ‘doing’ rather than the background theory. Concise, practical, visually striking guides that make it easier to Do stuff.
Each book is written by speakers from the Do Lectures, an annual event held in West Wales and California, whose ideas have inspired others to go and Do. Their aim is to recreate that same positive change in book form – whether that’s the mastery of a new skill or craft, a simple mind-shift, or a shot of inspiration to help you get started.
