A much-needed, evidence-based argument for hope in a world living through a planetary crisis. Through examples that show the real-world potential of amplifying scientific solutions, Hope Matters boldly tears down the narrative of doom and gloom that has overtaken conversations about our future. Award-winning author, scholar, and educator Elin Kelsey reveals the harm that hopelessness does to communities, and shows that realistic and engaged hope is the most effective motivator for action. She also describes effective campaigns and interventions on issues like ocean conservation, supporting species resilience, and rewilding, and demonstrates how digital conservation is helping scientists target specific areas with impressive results--and how we can continue to build on their efforts, and start our own, both now and for the future.
