Event Summary

We are excited to host an online book discussion of the book "The Future We Choose: The Stubborn Optimist's Guide to the Climate Crisis" by Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac. Led by moderator Nancy Salisbury, this event promises to delve into the urgent topic of climate change and the pivotal role technology and society play in shaping our collective future.

"The Future We Choose" presents a compelling narrative about the critical decisions humanity faces in tackling the climate crisis. Authors Figueres and Rivett-Carnac, both instrumental in negotiating the Paris Agreement, provide a roadmap for action while emphasizing the power of optimism and determination in overcoming this existential challenge.

Through this online book discussion, participants will have the opportunity to explore key themes and concepts from the book, engage in thought-provoking discussions, and share perspectives on how technology can be harnessed to drive positive change. From renewable energy solutions to sustainable urban planning, the conversation will highlight actionable steps individuals, communities, and policymakers can take to mitigate the impacts of climate change and build a more resilient future.

Join us for an enlightening discussion that will inspire hope, foster collaboration, and empower attendees to become agents of change in the fight against climate change. Together, let's explore "The Future We Choose" and pave the way for a more sustainable tomorrow.
