Coffee, Conversation, and the Climate

Join Katy Romita of One Small Stone for a 7-week conversation on climate change–and, importantly, how we can be part of the solution.

Like your favorite, most engaging book club, participants will read a short (~20-minute) article prior to each session, which will be the basis for a rich 90-minute facilitated discussion each week. No experience or special expertise needed. Come as you are.

Following adrienne maree brown’s work on “emergent strategy” – the theory that when people come together in authentic conversations, new ideas and insights naturally emerge – this program builds community and sparks new ideas.

Cost: $75

Dates: Tuesdays – October 11-November 22 (7 sessions)

Time: 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Format: Zoom (participate from anywhere!)

Please register. Following registration, the Zoom access instructions will be forwarded.
