Rise & Resist

How to Change the World

Clare Press
The revolution has arrived: get ready
Rise & Resist takes a wild trip through the new activism sweeping the world. The political march is back in a big way, as communities rally to build movements for environmental and social justice. But today's context calls for increasingly creative strategies to make our voices heard. Crossing the globe, Clare Press meets passionate change-makers who believe in the power of the positive. From eco warriors and zero wasters to knitting nannas, introvert craftivists to intersectional feminists, they're all up for a revolution of sorts. Are you? Join Press as she tracks the formation of a new counterculture, united by a grand purpose: to rethink how we live today to build a more sustainable tomorrow.

These pages offer badassery, wit, courage and humour. A timely reminder to us all that if we don’t like something, it’s up to each of us to get off our arses and do something about it —this is pure inspiration as to what that little ‘something’ might look like for you.”
Jess Miller, Deputy Lord Mayor of Sydney

A very important book.”
