Bending the Curve was born out of a need for South Africans to have access to better information about how specific sectors of society can contribute to tackling climate change. Bending the Curve is not just another book about the climate crisis, but a guide – co-authored by 24 experts – that will help you move from deliberation to action.
Whether you are a parent or policy developer, or work for a corporate or civil society organisation, you will find a wealth of practical ideas for making changes at work and in your personal life that will improve the lives of everyone and help to tackle this scourge.
There is no time to lose. We all need to get started now. Endorsements for the book:
‘Read this book and join the growing number of South Africans who are doing something about climate change at home and at work. Our commitment to taking on this challenge will determine our ongoing ability to create a more sustainable and equitable South Africa.â€ Kader Asmal
‘We are told that we need an elite that ploughs back; that filters down the line to every one of us. Going green used to be a trendy option and a marketing gimmick. Now it has to be a primary purpose. Bending the Curve is a positive step in that direction.â€ Derek Watts
‘Curbing carbon emissions is on a par with stopping nuclear proliferation. This book is crucial.â€ Clem Sunter
‘What is needed now is a public groundswell – people acting themselves, but also demanding action from governments – and a new generation of visionary leaders with the courage to implement the changes required. This book is an excellent and timely contribution to advocating action at all levels of society, starting with the individual.â€ David King
