Manifesto

£10.99

Dale Vince never intended to start a business. Driven by a passion for sustainability, he left school aged 15 and became a New Age traveller, living for free in a wind-powered double decker bus. But after building his first wind turbine, he realised that to change the world he needed to be on the grid, not off it. In 1996 he founded green energy company Ecotricity and changed the landscape of UK energy forever. In this book, he shares his single-minded and uniquely purpose-orientated approach to business.

Description

“Revealing, inspiring and funny. This book is a joy to romp through, which is good, because its final chapter is the important truth we all need to hear and understand if we are to survive this mess we’ve made” – Chris Packham

This is the story of a man whose unwavering journey to save the environment has driven him all the way to the top, and a powerful manifesto for anyone who wants to change the world. Dale Vince has led a remarkable life. From ‘enemy of the state’ to ‘green energy tycoon’, he has dedicated his life to challenging conventional wisdom in pursuit of a better way to live.

Dale kickstarted the now global green energy movement, helping to bring environmentalism into the mainstream. He pioneered the electric car, built the first Electric Highway to power them and runs Forest Green Rovers, the world’s first vegan football club. With a questioning mind that does not take ‘no’ for an answer, Dale has spent his whole life striving for change.

In his first book, Dale explores what must be done to win the battle for Green Britain.

It’s a manifesto of hope, backed up by solutions, from someone with real life experience of disrupting the energy industry and paving the way for a greener planet.

This is a manifesto that is changing the world.

The revised and updated version has a new chapter from Dale on why he decided to shift support from Just Stop Oil to Just Stopping The Tories, why politics is the final frontier for a greener Britain and includes important links to register to vote and to get your ID sorted for the most important election of our generation.
