Less is More | The Nature Book Club

Although the world has finally awakened to the reality of the climate crisis and ecological collapse, we continue to see proposed solutions that perpetuate the existing system of pro-growth capitalism. Instead of changing structural causes, the solutions revolve around utilizing technological innovations to spur more economic green growth. But what if these solutions (defined as green capitalism) do not work nor deliver as promised?

We invite you to join us for this session as we discuss the criticisms of green capitalism and explore the possibilities of a post-capitalist future from the degrowth

Happily, Ever After? | The Nature Book Club

The sheer scale and urgency of the climate crisis can seem overwhelming. In the midst of our long and gruelling fight against climate change, many of us feel strong eco-emotions such as grief, paralysis and anger, and these emotions can affect our mental health and ability to take part in climate action.

Join us for a discussion on the relationship between emotions and environmentalism, and be prepared to share your own experiences with eco-emotions too!
