“I dare you to be great – go, on stand up and speak out. We get to determine what the future is. Let’s engage in the big questions of our time, not the ones we already know the answers to. Ask questions – big ones that make a difference. And once you find the answer, let’s make it happen”.
I Dare You To Be Great explores Polly Higgins’ story as an Earth lawyer as she discovers how we can create a legal duty of care for the Earth – a law of Ecocide. We have a choice: break our chains and create a greater freedom, or remain enslaved to an era of Ecocide. Polly invites in a conversation of a different kind; firing up a neural pathway of exploration that takes us into the unknown yet expands our vision of what our legacy could be. Sharing her insights, she sheds a light on what is possible – a vision far greater and more beautiful than we have dared before.
Greatness is a quest: one that speaks to all of us. By daring to be great – rediscovering how to use the creativity, passion and power that lie within us – we can find freedom and inspiration to break the cycles of harm playing out in our world. This is the message of a new and inspiring book by prizewinning author Polly Higgins.
