Why we chose this book?
"We've read a lot of books on the climate and ecological crisis and what we can all do about it. They often leave us with a mix of fatigue and fear of the reality of what we're facing as well as ideas for what we might do. All We Can Save is different. Not just because of the splattering of powerful poetry but principally because it's a collective work."
Described as a 'provocative and illuminating essays from women at the forefront for the climate movement who are harnessing truth, courage, and solutions to lead humanity forward.' If we heed its words and inspiration, there is hope.
As it concludes: "It is a magnificent thing to be alive in a moment that matters so much. Let's proceed with broken-open hearts, seeking truth, summoning courage, and focusing on solutions."
