About The Book

They’re the “lucky” ones—the ten percent of the world’s population who managed to survive the ravages of global warming. But in the face of worldwide destruction, with the earth’s surface no longer compatible with human life, these men, women, and children soon found themselves with no other choice than to move underground.

About BYBS

Established in 2019, Be Your Best Self (BYBS) is a social enterprise based in the areas of education, early career and leadership development, developmental psychology, climate change education, and gaming. Founded by Stefania Maggi, an academic and child rights advocate, the genesis of BYBS came from a desire to empower children and youth through education of their rights and climate change education and the ability to shape their own future from an early age. Stefania invited Lisa Anna Palmer to join as her co-founder and Chief People Officer. Lisa is an entrepreneur and a career and leadership expert passionate about growing a generation of socially responsible leaders who care about people and the planet. Together with their valued team and collaborators, Stefania and Lisa are growing an enterprise devoted to helping children and youth around the globe to be their best selves, and live their best lives, for today and tomorrow.

BYBS’s products and services are developed in light of the most up-to-date, cutting-edge, interdisciplinary sciences relevant to early career and leadership development, child development, climate change education, and diversity & inclusion.
