The COP 28 UN Climate Change Conference takes place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from 30 November – 12 December 2023.

It will be a milestone moment when the world take stocks of its progress on the Paris Agreement. The first Global Stocktake (GST) will provide a comprehensive assessment of progress, aiming to align efforts on climate action, including measures that need to be put in place to bridge the gaps in progress.

We’ve put together a reading list of titles with an environmental focus, from Carbon Colonialism‘s analysis of the contradictions of climate politics, to Adrienne Bullers’ beautifully written critique of ‘green capitalism’ The Value of a Whale (now available as an audiobook), the Ice Humanities collection on the planet’s diminishing ice reserves and much more…
