Synopsis

Environment in the lives of children and families Perspectives from India and the UK by Ann Phoenix, Janet Boddy, Catherine Walker, Uma Vennam

Based on involved creative, qualitative work with families in India and the UK who live in different contexts, this book illuminates how environmental practices are negotiated within families, and how they relate to values, identities, and society. It contributes to understanding of the ways in which families and childhood are constructed as sites for intervention in climate change debates.

Reviews

Offers important insights on engaging families and compelling recommendations for communication about climate change, including greater focus on political agency. Clare Shakya, Director of Climate Change, International Institute for Environment and Development
