From the Australian wilderness to a peace center in Ireland, from a school in a remote Tanzanian village to an archeological dig in Spain, from a Romanian school to the Amazon forest––each description of more than 35 trips contain a personal account of what the adventure was really like, what was good and what was bad, who was met, and why the volunteer can’t wait to do it again . . . or not. Whether your passion is the environment, world peace, literacy, archeology, education, or healthcare, there is a place for you to help and a new place to call home temporarily. Whatever your age, physical condition, or skill level, even if you have never traveled or volunteered before, there is a project and a place for you. Details about a variety of sponsoring agencies––each with its own culture and mission––and valuable tips for choosing your special trip are provided. So, if you are looking to truly experience another culture or another country, seeking the adventure of a lifetime, or for a way to give back, Volunteering Around the Globe is your resource to volunteer opportunities designed for the heartiest and the frailest, the most adventuresome and the more cautious––all over the world and in your own country.

Adventures in the Anthropocene

** Winner of Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books 2015 ** We live in epoch-making times. The changes we humans have made in recent decades have altered our world beyond anything it has experienced in its 4.6 billion-year history. As a result, our planet is said to be crossing into the Anthropocene – the Age of Humans. Gaia Vince decided to travel the world at the start of this new age to see what life is really like for the people on the frontline of the planet we’ve made. From artificial glaciers in the Himalayas to painted mountains in Peru, electrified reefs in the Maldives to garbage islands in the Caribbean, Gaia found people doing the most extraordinary things to solve the problems that we ourselves have created. These stories show what the Anthropocene means for all of us – and they illuminate how we might engineer Earth for our future.
