And yet so often the narratives that dominate public conversation on the environment focus on the threat and doom of inaction as a way of trying to motivate human behaviour. Kelsey draws on a rich interdisciplinary tapestry of research to show how this has failed. She demonstrates how hope can empower humans to care for the world they know and love.
