As corporations hellbent on burning even more fossil fuels heat up our beautiful planet, urgent questions are burning inside me. Facing them alone is exhausting. That's why I hope to make exploring them into a rich and vital conversation. We live at an extraordinary moment. It will take all of us to turn it around.

How can the next generation grow up grounded and powerful?

As a mentor at a Bluegum Bushcraft rewild camp, I'm astounded by the magic of play, skimming rocks, campfire stories and shrieking wild swims. The camp came just before our very own "Camp Mama", Gina, won the survival show Alone, But am I mentoring the kids, or are they mentoring me?

On the frontlines of fossil fuel extraction, communities are speaking out for their rights, the rights of their rivers and forests – and our global climate. Iquitos, in north-eastern Peru is the largest city in the world with no road access. You must fly or travel days up the Amazon River to get there. The river is gob-smacking.

How do we make progress across the different layers, loyalties and interests in our democratic process to advance the collective good? I took a wild ride through ten years of losing – and occasionally winning – climate campaigns. And sometimes that meant dressing up in giant heads. Did we change nothing, or did everything change?
