Talking About Climate Change
Paola Gianturco:
COOL: Women Leaders Reversing Global Warming
Mark your calendars for an exciting program on what the UN calls the defining issue of our time: Climate Change. Author and photographer Paola Gianturco will bring us images and inspiring stories from her most recent book: COOL: Women Leaders Reversing Global Warming. Paola, who lives here in Mill Valley, has documented women’s issues in more than 60 countries in her six previous award-winning books. In this new one she highlights a fascinating array of leaders, from the 15,000 Sri Lankan women who raise and plant “miracle trees” to the woman Mayor who has led Sydney to become Australia’s first carbon neutral city. Co-written with her 12-year old granddaughter Avery Sangster, the book features women leaders around the world who are taking action to reverse global warming. Paola and Avery interviewed and photographed “heads of grassroots organizations, activists, politicians, corporate executives, scholars and presidents of nonprofits” around the world, including in the United States, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Tanzania, Australia, Sri Lanka, India, Canada and Hong Kong. The book not only tells their important stories, in their own words, but suggests action steps so we can join them on the journey. We hope you will save the date and plan to join us for an engaging presentation and discussion with Paola.
