There Is Still Hope
In a world that seems so troubled, how do we hold on to hope? It is hard to remain optimistic in challenging times, and we are constantly being faced with a new one: the pandemic, political unrest, climate crisis, and the loss of biodiversity. And yet, hope has never been more desperately needed.
Holding on to hope is at the center of the incredible new book from Jane Goodall, and Douglas Abrams called The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times. Jane Goodall, the world's most famous living naturalist, and Douglas Abrams, the co-author of The Book of Joy (featuring Dalai Lama and Desmond Tutu), engage in an intimate and thought-provoking dialogue that explores the least understood elements of human nature: hope.
While discussing the experiences that shaped her discoveries and beliefs, Jane tells the story of how she became a messenger of hope, from living through World War II to her years in Gombe to realizing she had to leave the forest to travel the world in her role as an advocate for environmental justice. And for the first time, she shares her profound revelations about her next, and perhaps final, adventure.
Jane focuses on four reasons for hope: The amazing human intellect, the resilience of nature, the power of young people, and the indomitable human spirit. There is still hope!
