We will be discussing “*The Climate Book: The Facts and the Solutions*” by vegan author Greta Thurnberg, and a selection from this year’s project book, *Vegan Voices: Essays by Inspiring Changemakers,* ed. *by* Koanne Kong.
This meeting will take place on Zoom.
**About the book:**
**We still have time to change the world. From climate activist Greta Thunberg, comes the essential handbook for making it happen.**
You might think it’s an impossible task: secure a safe future for life on Earth, at a scale and speed never seen, against all the odds. There is hope – but only if we listen to the science before it’s too late.
In *The Climate Book,* Greta Thunberg has gathered the wisdom of over one hundred experts – geophysicists, oceanographers and meteorologists; engineers, economists and mathematicians; historians, philosophers and indigenous leaders – to equip us all with the knowledge we need to combat climate disaster. Throughout, illuminating and often shocking grayscale charts, graphs, diagrams, photographs, and illustrations underscore their research and their arguments. Alongside them, she shares her own stories of demonstrating and uncovering greenwashing around the world, revealing how much we have been kept in the dark. This is one of our biggest challenges, she shows, but also our greatest source of hope. Once we are given the full picture, how can we not act? And if a schoolchild’s strike could ignite a global protest, what could we do collectively if we tried?
Hope to see you then!
