All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis
Tuesday, January 19, 4:30 pm
There is a renaissance blooming in the climate movement: leadership that is more characteristically feminine and more faithfully feminist, rooted in compassion, connection, creativity, and collaboration. While it’s clear that women and girls are vital voices and agents of change for this planet, they are too often missing from the proverbial “table.” More than a problem of bias, it’s a dynamic that sets us up for failure. To change everything, we need everyone.
Intermixing essays with poetry and art, this book is both a balm and a guide for knowing and holding what has been done to the world, while bolstering our resolve never to give up on each other or our collective future. We must summon truth, courage, and solutions, to turn away from the brink and toward life-giving possibility. Curated by two climate leaders, this book is a collection and celebration of visionaries who are leading us on a path toward all we can save.
Purchase the book at bookshop.org, borrow it from your local library, or look for it on Amazon or Audible.
To learn more about how climate is affecting us locally in Massachusetts and the Blue Hills, you can also join us for our winter lecture series, Our Climate Crisis: Research and Opportunities for Action.
