About this title

Synopsis:

In the environmental realm, science and art are inextricably linked. While science determines how we measure the health of our planet, art allows us to visualize our relationship to the natural world.

In Art of Action, seventy-nine artists share their stories and work to paint a portrait of our natural world today and the potential pathways - both positive and negative - we may follow from here. Their art expresses appreciation for all species and landscapes and explores our natural world lost, mourned and reconstructed. It described the fantasy of paradises new and vanished.

Each chapter asks us to celebrate, reflect, interact, protect and act, demonstrating the diversity of life and the legacy that the next generation will inherit.

No book can change the natural world. But these stories and photographs can build awareness, the first critical step in changing our collective paradigm from one that exploits and destroys nature to one that nurtures and values our environment.
