Climate crisis, environmental disasters, pandemic and so on...Crisis becomes mundane, and penetrates our everyday life. "What will tomorrow look like if the climate crisis goes on like this?" "What can we do for/with our next generations to grab the last hope?" "Can education be our hope, then how?" Four authors, who have been active in the environmental education sector have united to answer these questions. As an integral part of the exploration, the authors visited various environmental education sites in Australia, Germany, the United Kingdom, Sudan, South Africa, Cambodia, Cuba, Thailand, Japan and South Korea and asked questions. And the stories of hope they found unfold in this book. 

Also, the stories in this book are interwoven with eight core values as such: life and ecology, justice, equity, sharing and solicitude, empathy and responsibility. Each story begins with an everyday issue that anyone can sympathize with, and presents alternatives; living with nature, starting civil initiatives, switching to sustainable consumption etc.
