eCornell Keynote: In This Together
In This Together: Connecting with Your Community to Combat the Climate Crisis
Wednesday, June 21, 2023, 1 PM EDT
When it comes to the climate crisis, we are all “in this together,” and we can fight back by connecting with our community to take action. During this conversation, Dr. Marianne Krasny will answer questions about the most effective climate actions that everyday citizens can take—from eating plant-rich meals to volunteering for a climate app. She will show how the latest research can guide us in influencing our close friends and family to take climate action alongside us. Dr. Krasny will also share how one contemporary philosopher has helped her think about her—and your—responsibility for the climate crisis.
Short videos of students taking “network climate actions” with their families and friends will enliven the conversation. And don’t miss the special guest appearance of former New Yorker cartoonist Emily Hopkins, who contributed drawings to Dr. Krasny’s book In This Together: Connecting with Your Community to Combat the Climate Crisis (Cornell University Press, March 2023).
