What does it mean to be a parent in a world which is warming? How are we going to help our children prepare for an increasingly uncertain future? These are questions I have been asking myself ever since I became a mum. In this new book, written as one parent to another, I try to explore these hard questions. There are no easy answers – but I share my personal story of change, hopeful that many others can relate to it and start to act for our children’s future.


Copies of my new book can be purchased from Veritas Online.   Kindle version is available on Amazon.co.uk. If you are interested in having me come and speak at an event or for media please contact me on: lorna.gold@trocaire.org



“Lorna Gold has given all of herself to this small book. She takes us on an anguished journey into the heart of the climate crisis, and emerges emboldened – with a radical, utterly convincing hope that we can spring into action to protect the future of everything, and everyone, we love most.” – Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate.


“We need more narratives on climate change so that people are encouraged to make it a personal issue in their lives. This compelling personal story of a mother and activist makes that emotional connection very well, as she wakes up to the danger her children are in and connects the dots on how to safeguard their future.” – Mary Robinson, President, Mary Robinson Foundation – Climate Justice.
