Stories for our Children: The World in 2050
Stories for our Children: The World in 2050 depicts the projected trends for the state of the world’s environment to 2050, based on what is likely to happen if humanity continues to use the planet’s resources the way that we do today without modifying our behaviour.
Although presented in the style of a children’s book, it is really targeted at adults. The stark, authoritative projections and Martin Rowson's jarring illustrations are designed to make us think about the questions our children might ask if we leave the planet to them in such a state.

While the story is perhaps familiar, the solutions that will help address these great challenges are less well known. Solutions are beginning to emerge from all sectors of society.
For each of the issues highlighted in Stories for our Children: The World in 2050, we provide a few actions that you can personally take to ensure the future is better for the next generation. Some of the recommendations are specific to certain parts of the world, so will not be relevant to everyone. We also list examples of initiatives or important reports that are identifying solutions to the great environmental challenges of this century.
