We are in the midst of a global crisis of care. How do we get out of it?
The Care Manifesto puts care at the heart of the debates of our current crisis: from intimate care–childcare, healthcare, elder care–to care for the natural world. We live in a world where carelessness reigns, but it does not have to be this way.

The authors want to reimagine the role of care in our everyday lives, making it the organising principle in every dimension and at every scale of life. We are all dependent on each other, and only by nurturing these interdependencies can we cultivate a world in which each and every one of us can not only live but thrive.
