In This Together: Connecting with Your Community to Combat the Climate Crisis

Thursday, September 28, 2023 at 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Mann Library, 160
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

How can one person have a real impact on something as large as the climate crisis? In her new book In This Together: Connecting with Your Community to Combat the Climate Crisis (Cornell University Press, 2023) Marianne E. Krasny weaves together scholarly insights on behavioral and structural change with concrete examples of climate-forward initiatives to demonstrate practical ways individuals can connect with others to inspire hope and effect widespread change.

In a live, hybrid (in-person and livestreamed) Chats in the Stacks book talk, Krasny, professor and director of graduate studies in natural resources and the environment, and director of the Cornell Civic Ecology Lab, will distill research on how to scale up individual climate actions--such as eating a plant-rich diet or advocating for climate policies--through Network Climate Action, or the leveraging of close-tie social networks that take climate action together. 

This talk is hosted by Mann Library. Light refreshments will be served.
