Caspar Henderson’s book tells the stories of the people trying to transform Britain’s ecology through technology

Simon Spanton, Editor-At-Large, and Sarah Rigby, Publishing Director, have bought The Green Ways: Dispatches from a New Britain by Caspar Henderson. World rights were acquired from James MacDonald Lockhart at Antony Harwood Limited, with publication due in early 2022.

In the book, Henderson tells the stories of the ‘remarkable people and projects that could see the British Isles become a carbon-neutral, bio-diverse, sustainable place for its people and wildlife’, talking to innovators, engineers, famers, fashion designers, museums and ecologists who are building the technology that could transform Britain.

Henderson said: “Almost nothing is more important than a just transition towards zero carbon and more ecologically resilient future. We face huge challenges, but the British Isles are teeming with possibilities, large and small. I am hugely looking forward to encounters with some of the remarkable people and the projects that are making change possible, and sharing their stories.”

Elliott & Thompson said: “Caspar’s background and expertise in environmental and climate science allied to his wonderfully clear and elegant prose writing make him the perfect author for this new book and we’re thrilled to be working with him on what we hope will be an important and positive book in an area of crucial importance to us all.”
