Fighting for a green world -- a collection of essays and writing for building an equal, healthier society.

Access to the natural world is a human right. This inspiring book captures why contact with nature is essential for our mental, social and physical well-being -- and how we can rethink urban development to create green city spaces and a return to nature.

Find an inspiring collection of original writings from world-leading "green" voices and discover:

- Benefits and issues surrounding our access to nature
- Discussions on social and environmental justice
- Why we need nature around us, how we're being deprived of nature and what we can all do to change environmental and social issues
- Edited by the founder of the environmental justice campaign Nature is a Human Right, Ellen Miles

Concrete outweighs every tree, bush, and shrub on Earth. Nature deprivation is a fast-growing epidemic, harming the health and happiness of hundreds of millions of people worldwide -- especially vulnerable and marginalized groups. Nature is a Human Right, founded by Ellen Miles in 2020, is working to make access to green space a recognized right for all, not a privilege.

This book brings together a collection of engaging, accessible essays, interviews and exercises, from expert ambassadors and supporters (including authors, artists, scientists, human rights experts, television presenters, TED speakers, and climate activists). Each contributor offers a new perspective on why contact with nature should be a protected human right.

Enlightening and sometimes uncomfortable, this collection of writing and ideas illuminate the work that needs to be done to make our global future happier.

About the Author
Ellen Miles founded the Nature Is a Human Right campaign in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic - an event that highlighted many social and environmental inequalities including nature deprivation. Taking on the sentiment flooding our news channels, social media, and advertisements that we must find a new normal, the NIAHR campaign and its supporters (from authors, naturalists, and eco-educators to climate activists and sustainable fashion bloggers) are transforming this platitude into a catalyst for change and action. Their goal is to make access to nature a human right recognized by the United Nations (UN), and to achieve a healthy, happier, greener, more equal world.
