I veckan meddelade förlagsjätten Penguin att en ny bokserie är på gång i slutet av sommaren.

Green Ideas, som projektet kallas, kommer bestå av 20 böcker som på ett eller annat sätt tar sig an miljö- och klimatfrågorna. Greta Thunberg, i dag 18 år, är enda svensken som finns med.

Facebook skriver Penguin:

Over the past 75 years, a new canon has emerged. As life on Earth has become irrevocably altered by humans, visionary thinkers around the world have raised their voices to defend the planet, and affirm our place at the heart of its restoration. Their words have endured through the decades, becoming the classics of a movement.

These twenty short books contain the ideas that have changed the way we think and talk about the living Earth. From art, literature, food and gardening, to technology, economics, politics and ethics, each one deepens our sense of our place in nature; each is a seed from which a bold activism can grow. Together, they show the richness of environmental thought, and point the way to a fairer, saner, greener world.

Texterna har alltså getts ut tidigare, och vissa har även kortats ned för att passa bokseriens upplägg.

Enligt Penguin kommer lansering ske den 26 augusti.
