Join Unity Books, Freerange Press and contributors Emily Writes, Brannavan Gnanalingam, Jess Berentson-Shaw and more to celebrate the launch of Parenting in the Anthropocene, the third volume in the Radical Futures series. -- About the book Humans are changing the world in extremely complex ways, creating a new geological age called the Anthropocene. How do we – as parents, caregivers and as a society – raise our children and dependents in this new world? This multi-author book explores ways to ensure the health and wellbeing of the next generations, with a view to encouraging inclusivity and critical discourse at a time of climate crisis, inequality and polarisation. From tikanga Māori and collective care in child-rearing through to new family forms, futures literacy, and shifting economic paradigms and societal structures, Parenting in the Anthropocene is a reflection of both the world we live in and the one we aspire to.
