This is a book unlike any other. It does not tell you what you must do, it does not set out a guide for the 10 definitive steps to becoming great by next Thursday - it does so much more than that.
Dare To Be Great explores how anyone can open pathways for themselves and for our society as a whole to become truly great.
Polly Higgins was a luminary in the fight for environmental justice and a beacon for how we can all live the brave, bold lives we imagine.
This book is a call to arms for the changing world in which we live - a world that needs our greatness now more than ever.
AUTHOR: World-renowned barrister and author Polly Higgins proposed to the United Nations that ecocide be made a crime - to prohibit mass damage and destruction. She was voted one of the World's Top 10 Visionary Thinkers, No. 35 in Salt Magazine's Top 100 Inspiring Women of the World and dubbed The People's Lawyer. Her story is a journey of facing something enormous and finding the keys and tools to unlock something even greater instead. Calling on leaders to step into their greatness, she realised that greatness begins with the self. A unique story, it is part self-learned, part self-unlearned. To break the cycles of harm playing out in the world, our ecocides, is to break the cycles of harm playing within ourselves. Polly was also the award-winning author of 'Eradicating Ecocide'. She passed away in April 2019 and her legacy is being continued by the Stop Ecocide group who are working at an international level to ratify the ecocide law in 2020 and by the work of Extinction Rebellion.
