The book we all need right now... 

(Well, we might've needed it yesterday to

be honest, but at least it's here now!) 

When it comes to political, social, and environmental anxieties, we have a veritable smorgasbord to choose from, don’t we? We’re polarised and politicised and many of us are feeling exhausted, battered and broken. Not only have we got our own personal life stuff to deal with, but it's all against backdrop of the world, seemingly, falling apart. It's no wonder that a lot of people feel like they’re losing hope in the chaos. But now, more than ever, we need hopeful, helpful people who are engaged in the fight for a better future (it also wouldn't go astray if they actually enjoyed their lives along the way!). So, how do we get our spark back? 

The solution to losing hope is the

simple decision to keep choosing hope.

Hope is a Verb is an exquisite visual handbook for transforming anxiety about the world into meaningful action, delivered through illustrations, prose, flow charts and infographics: a gift book for an era of global anxiety

 

When the world feels uncertain, we need hope, humour and meaningful action. Emily's debut book is the beautifully simple solution for not only how to rekindle your hope and create change but how to stay sane while doing it.

 

Through this creative guidebook, readers will work to live in alignment with their values, examine their relationships with the planet and their community, and be inspired to act, both in their personal life and collectively. 

 

Emily Ehlers, creator of the cult favorite Instagram account @ecowithem, offers the following six-step process that reframes the current global mood as an invitation to realize change, rather than dwell in despair.

 

  • Step One: Stop Freaking Out

  • Step Two: Change the Story

  • Step Three: Set Your Inner Compass

  • Step Four: Own Your Power

  • Step Five: Just Start

  • Step Six: Find Your People

 

Using her experience as an environmental activist, Emily offers ways for readers to change their perspective as a path to overcome challenges and create a better future.
