About this Event

Welcome to the exploding universe of books focused on creating positive exponential shifts (Green Swans).

We hold monthly events to introduce you to brilliant authors and conversations about the powerful ways we can transform our world.

Join us if you are curious about the future of capitalism, work in business and finance, or plan to do so.

Wednesday, 28 April 5:00 – 6:30pm GMT.

You are invited to join us in conversation with James Thornton to discuss his inspiring book Client Earth which he co-wrote with Martin Goodman.

It tells his story of leading a passionate army of environmental lawyers, whose client is the Earth itself. How they work to protect our planet from those in power who pollute, destroy, and devastate our natural world - taking governments to court and winning.

The book leads us from Poland to Ghana, from Alaska to China, to see how citizens can use public interest law to protect our planet ― and our future.

Register to discuss the book and James' powerful work. You can buy Client Earth from The Book Depository and other book shops.
