A Review of Klein, N., & Stefoff, R. (2021)’s How to Change Everything: A Young Human’s Guide to Protecting the Planet and Each Other
How to Change Everything (2021) takes Klein's renowned work This Changes Everything (2014), and with the support of Rebecca Stefoff, an author with significant experience writing for young readers, targets the youth that came of age during the climate strikes. Throughout the 300 well-paced and authoritative pages, Klein and Stefoff centre the work of Greta Thunberg and the principles of climate justice and seek to build on the momentum of youth activism from before the pandemic. Yet readers coming from a public education background will note the dearth of practical applications for the classroom. The world of tomorrow will be changed through movement building outside of the school and instead in community and on the streets claim Klein and Stefoff, leaving behind increasingly disconnected systems of education.
