We are living in exceptional times. Scientists tell us that we have 10 years to change the way we live, avert the depletion of natural resources and the catastrophic evolution of the Earth's climate.

The stakes are high for us and our children. Everyone should take part in the effort, and HOME has been conceived to take a message of mobilization out to every human being.

For this purpose, HOME needs to be free. A patron, the PPR Group, made this possible. EuropaCorp, the distributor, also pledged not to make any profit because Home is a non-profit film.

HOME has been made for you : share it! And act for the planet.

HOME the book is a guide, a comprehensive work that takes us on an amazing journey around the world. 84 photographs provide a visually stunning angle from which to look at old problems under a new light. The book HOME is a hymn to our planet and to our species. By offering clear and accessible summaries, and untangling difficult questions, it opens possibilities and shows that ways to change the world do exist. From the author of the multi-million copy international bestseller Earth From Above comes a moving and brilliantly photographed new book. Home, scheduled to release in conjunction with a film of the same name, is a stunning visual odyssey. A globe-spanning exploration of the planet, complete with Arthus-Bertrand’s unforgettable images and an informative text by the team at Good Planet, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting sustainable development, Home is a celebration of Earth’s beauty and an impassioned call to protect it from destruction. Compelling and defiantly optimistic, Home voyages through over 50 countries, considering the environment’s current condition and factors which will play a role in determining its future. As Arthus-Bertrand says, “It isn’t the 50 percent of forest that has disappeared that’s important, but the 50 percent that’s left.”
