Introducing our new book for climate activists, community organizers and engaged citizens

book 2.png

Written by the experienced intersectional youth climate justice organizers at Shake Up The Establishment, this book provides a guided experience for readers to explore and play with our Rest, Recovery and Resistance (3RS) framework, a spin on sustainability’s well-known slogan “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”. By making time for rest, promoting recovery from burnout, and celebrating sustained acts of resistance, this book helps to facilitate radical dreaming and imagination beyond current systems. To support progress towards actualizing shared visions for just, equitable, climate-resilient futures, this self-published organizer's manual features 244 hand-illustrated pages rich with activities and educational resources that guide readers on how to incorporate intersectionality, systems-thinking and anti-colonial practices within their climate solutions work.

Why We Made This Book

Practicing Rest, Recovery, Resistance: An Interactive Dreaming Journal is composed of prompts, resources, and reflections that were developed with an immense amount of care and consideration for you, our community of fellow climate activists, community organizers and engaged citizens. By making time for rest, promoting recovery from burnout, and celebrating sustained acts of resistance, this journal helps to support radical dreaming and imagination beyond current systems.

 

We designed this journal to create opportunities for joy, reflection, and learning as we try to combat the mass occurrence of eco-grief across the climate movement. We want to remind young organizers that taking time for themselves to rest and recover is not only a necessity, but part of the resistive effort against the unhealthy working standards set by the capitalistic, colonial society we presently exist in. 

 

Many young activists are told that their hopes for a better future are naive or unrealistic, but through this journal, we want to remind them that radical thinking is what we need right now. Dreaming and hoping for a better future is a key part of challenging the very systems keeping us from it. Young people must take time to rest, recover and reimagine as we fight for a future in which we not only get to survive, but thrive.

Frequently Asked Questions

Currently, the cheapest shipping we can get from Canada Post is using the extra small flat rate shipping box to ship across Canada. Unfortunately, the book is too thick to pass as letter mail, and the parcels are upwards of $20 if shipped based on their weight alone, so that’s why we’re going with flat rate boxes, which we are selling at cost to you as our $19 shipping option. We can fit up to four (4) books in one small box, so we recommend you coordinate placing orders with friends, family, and colleagues to minimize & split shipping costs.
