After spearheading Fridays For Future and receiving Nobel Prize on Climate Change, Gerta penned her moving thoughts to reach as many people as she can. Her book is a call to action and a sharp reminder of how little time we have to save the world by owning the harm we do to Mother Nature and setting up measures to mitigate them.

The book by a professor of environmental and forest biology and member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, Robin Wall Kimmerer, details the beauty of nature and how we can learn great values from plants and animals that surround us and live in the lap of nature.
What Can I Do? by Jane Fonda

The book includes a handy section at the end of each chapter on points we can take to save the planet.
