  • Length of course: 3 terms. Autumn (2 Weeks), Spring (3 Weeks), Summer (3 Weeks)
  • Number of places: 14
  • Start date: 27 October 2020
  • Description:

    We will discuss books and other materials eg newspaper articles, both fact and fiction on various aspects of sustainability, and consider taking appropriate actions such as writing to MPs, lowering thermostats, car sharing or planting trees or a wild flower meadow. Our first book will be Christian Figueres et al's book, 'The Future We choose'. I hope that members will suggest other books. (We usually divide books into sections assigned to individuals to reduce workload.) Last year we read, Mike Berners-Lee's, 'There is no Plan(et) B'; 'The Uninhabitable Earth' by David Wallace-Wells and Jessica 'Tree's Wilding' and watched a recording of a BBC programme on climate change. This course is for anyone interested in and/or who would like to know and do more about environmental matters.
