Tro på det

Klima, håb og handlekraft

MED TRO PÅ DET ØNSKER IDA AUKEN AT VENDE ANGST TIL HÅB OG HANDLING.

Ida Auken var i 20’erne, da en klimadepression sendte hende ned i et sort hul – hvordan skulle verden overleve? Og kunne man være bekendt at sætte børn i den? I dag tænker mange unge det samme. De er bange for fremtiden.

Ida Auken har brugt sit liv på at beskæftige sig med klimaet: Hun har præsenteret vantro amerikanske politikere for billig vindmøllestrøm, hun har råbt op, når andre har tøvet med at skrue ned for CO2-udledningen, og så har hun været med, mens Danmark for alvor tog fat på den grønne omstilling. Det fortæller hun om i denne bog, der er spækket med personlige overvejelser og erfaringer.

Klimasituationen er alvorlig. Vi har nået vigtige mål, men verden har stadig brug for den forandring, vi sammen kan skabe ved at tro på det. I denne bog viser Ida Auken en vej til forandringen og indgyder samtidig sin læser nyt håb. 

Ida Auken er uddannet teolog fra Københavns Universitet. Hun har gennem hele sin professionelle karriere beskæftiget sig med klima- og miljøpolitik, blandt andet som miljøminister.
