In Marwa Al-Sabouni's Building for Hope she speaks about the generational differences in perspectives between herself and her daughter. Reflecting on the potential for finding revolutionary solutions by having an intergenerational approach, we curated these Change our Planet (COP) conversations between writers and thinkers of different generations. From the natural world to the built environment, the COP Conversations encourage us to craft the future of our planet hand-in-hand, with open minds.

Suzanne Simard's book, The Mother Tree, hailed by the Guardian as 'a new way of communicating that the world desperately needs to hear,' speaks about the interconnectedness of nature while exploring the lives of trees.

 Dara McAnulty, 16-year-old naturalist, environmental campaigner and author of the Wainwright Prize winning Diary of a Young Naturalist, speaks passionately about how young people need to get more connected with nature.
