Generation Brave

The Gen Z Kids Who Are Changing the World

An illustrated celebration of Gen Z activists fighting to make our world a better place.

Gen Z is populated—and defined—by activists. They are bold and original thinkers and not afraid to stand up to authority and conventional wisdom. From the March for Our Lives to the fight for human rights and climate change awareness, this generation is leading the way toward truth and hope like no generation before.

Generation Brave showcases Gen Z activists who are fighting for change on many fronts: climate change, LGBTQ rights, awareness and treatment of mental illness, gun control, gender equality, and corruption in business and government at the highest levels. Illustrated throughout, this book will offer a celebration of what might be the most influential generation of the century, including profiles of figures such as:

  • Simone Biles
  • Jaden Smith
  • Jazz Jennings
  • Haile Thomas
  • Yara Shahidi
  • Nadya Okamoto
  • Marley Dias
  • Helena Gualinga
  • Fionn Ferreira

. . . and other amazing kids who are using their voices for good.
