Inspired by the potential of finding solutions in the joining of science and spirituality, A Future We Can Love takes readers on a journey of building knowledge, resilience, hope, and resolve to create a future that our children and our grandchildren will love.

When the Dalai Lama and Greta Thunberg spoke for the first time, millions of people took notice globally. The palpable sense of promise in their meeting drew its energy from the contrast of the two figures—one an embodiment of peace and patience, the other a rising symbol of the need for urgent action. In this joining, the spark of what it will take to turn the tide of climate change is obvious: awareness of our undeniable interconnection, unflinchingly facing the reality of our environmental threat, and acknowledging both Earth’s capacity and our own capacity for healing.

Susan Bauer-Wu, author of A Future We Can Love

In A Future We Can Love, Susan Bauer-Wu, President of the Mind & Life Institute, interweaves wisdom and guidance from the Dalai Lama and Greta Thunberg with contributions from leading scientists, spiritual teachers, and climate activists to offer hope, encouragement, and specific tools we need to work together and make a positive difference.

All of the author’s proceeds from this book will go directly to the Mind & Life Institute in support of its non-profit mission.
