Publisher's Summary

Provocative and illuminating essays from women at the forefront of the climate movement who are harnessing truth, courage, and solutions to lead humanity forward.

There is a renaissance blooming in the climate movement: leadership that is more characteristically feminine and more faithfully feminist, rooted in compassion, connection, creativity, and collaboration. While it’s clear that women and girls are vital voices and agents of change for this planet, they are too often missing from the proverbial table. More than a problem of bias, it’s a dynamic that sets us up for failure. To change everything, we need everyone.

All We Can Save illuminates the expertise and insights of dozens of diverse women leading on climate in the United States - scientists, journalists, farmers, lawyers, teachers, activists, innovators, wonks, and designers, across generations, geographies, and race - and aims to advance a more representative, nuanced, and solution-oriented public conversation on the climate crisis. These women offer a spectrum of ideas and insights for how we can rapidly, radically reshape society.

Intermixing essays with poetry and art, this book is both a balm and a guide for knowing and holding what has been done to the world, while bolstering our resolve never to give up on one another or our collective future. We must summon truth, courage, and solutions to turn away from the brink and toward life-giving possibility. Curated by two climate leaders, the book is a collection and celebration of visionaries who are leading us on a path toward all we can save. 

This audiobook includes a PDF of climate resources and references.

Truly Inspirational, I will play it again and again!

It was a great privilege to have all these remarkable women in my ear, sharing their stories, their wisdom, their pain and passion. It can be lonely and frustrating to work towards a better future, against the odds, with so many barriers in our way. Listening to them gives me a sense of greater community, colleagueship. I expect to return to this book here and as a hard copy many times!

One of the best books I've ever read/listened to

Wow. This book deserves thousands of 5 star reviews so it can be at the top of the list. When I search "climate change" in Audible, it doesn't even come up on the first page. Please, get this and listen to it. I could not stop listening. In some parts it was funny, some parts were tragic, some were informative, and some were reflective. I bought a physical copy and it is just as beautiful. I can't recommend this book enough.

You Want To Listen

A lot of people are afraid of the subject matter: climate change. It seems depressing and hopeless. This book will give you joyful concrete steps of building community and taking inspirational action by raising your voice. No matter how small, everyone’s climate justice actions and involvement will create, mitigate, and help with adaptation for a better world. Global cooperation, inclusivity, organizing, ingenuity, elbow grease, celebration, singing and dancing are all part of the solutions!

Essential, educational, empowering

The essays in this book are beautifully written and an important reminder of how critical community and diversity are in our ecosystems (whether in “nature” or in human institutions, as well as in their interplay). We need to pay attention to these leaders and do our own part to bring ourselves and our communities back into equilibrium with the natural world we depend on. We must become citizen lobbyists for this crisis!

Stories about climate and environmental issues

Very interesting read in a women-centric book. I personally believe that women running this world would provide better solutions to our lives and our planet--this coming from a male. The interweaving of women's lives, their environmental passions, and motivational appeals read by often well-known celebrities keeps the book full of variety and human interest. Again I only wish we could have more women in positions of power because they would avoid the selfish, macho misdirection of males.

Truthful and also empowering

Lifting up voices and perspectives of powerful women already in the climate change fight. An invitation to hear their stories and join in the fight of all of our lives.

A must read for all

Unlike most climate narratives and writings, AllWe Can Save is the book we all need now. It communicates the urgency without overwhelming. It honestly address the grief many feel in the face of the climate crisis; yet provides the much needed emotion support and validation of collective grief. It’s written with determined, gentle and nurturing energy. The performance of the essays are hilarious, moving, provoking and empowering. Beautifully done.

We are not alone.

Not alone in the fight for change, not alone in the climate crisis anxiety and depression, not alone in our decision making for our own futures. May it be careers, education and family 👪 decisions. This book helped me learn new ways ( individually and as an activist) in communicating climate crisis to ppl.
thank you for this book, I will keep up the fight.

clear voices inform and inspire

Hearing these voices is a powerful way for us, men and women, to inform ourselves and steal ourselves to action. thank you to those who wrote, assembled, read and produced this wonderful and diverse content. I heard voices that I will follow up with as I engage more fully in right climate action.
