As you’ll see, the particular workshop this message is promoting took place a few weeks ago.
I’m posting this because I want readers to know the workshop exists, & also that author & activist extraordinaire Guy Dauncey has published a new book called The Climate Challenge: 101 Solutions to Global Warming. More info on it below, along with a wonderful tribute to its practicality from Bill McKibben.
