As wildfires, biodiversity loss, plastic pollution, and climate change increasingly impact upon ecosystems and human livelihoods around the world,1 a growing number of scholars are emphasizing the importance of hope. Hope can mitigate the paralysis of helplessness and catalyze ambitious efforts towards sustainability.2 Charting Environmental Law Futures in the Anthropocene, edited by Michelle Lim, carves out its place in that context, as an ambitious and forward-facing contribution to environmental law scholarship. The book presents a diverse series of case studies and conceptual analyses. In doing so, it proposes a roadmap for improving the capacity of environmental laws to promote desirable futures in a period of unprecedented global change.
