Lead for the Planet: Five Practices for Confronting Climate Change
Lead for the Planet develops climate solutions that prioritize the well-being of people and ecosystems globally. The book is unique in its application of a broad range of social science perspectives, from anthropology to psychology to economics, to help decision-makers explore how humanity can best address the climate crisis. Leaders get things done through people, and just as they have applied natural science to understand climate change, now they should apply social science to improve how society makes decisions about the climate crisis.
Refined over a decade in university courses on leadership for planetary sustainability, Lead for the Planet outlines five practices that successful leaders will need to adopt. The book is also meant to start conversations and asks crucial questions, such as: Who exactly is going to get this thing done? Taking human nature into account, what is the best way forward? In the end, will Team Humanity save the planet?
