Average Rating:

2af39f8f5c9bd68858a65b1011e9203f-huge-anEach month, Citizens’ Climate Lobby supporters gather locally for a monthly meeting where we educate ourselves by listening to a guest speaker.

In November, our speaker will be Dr. Andy Hoffman, University of Michigan and we will meet: Saturday, November 9th, at 1:00 pm ET / 10:00 am PT

Solving climate change — and saving civilization as we know it — will require a major systemic shift in our culture. Andrew Hoffman maintains that we are in a societal moment akin to a new era of enlightenment. He joins us to talk about the system-level changes to our thinking needed in the anthropocene and the role of business in the great rethinking of our economy. Hoffman is the Holcim (US) Professor of Sustainable Enterprise at the University of Michigan. He has published 16 books, including How Culture Shapes the Climate Change Debate and Re-engaging with Sustainability in the Anthropocene Era: An Institutional Approach.

Where can I find a copy of the volunteer video of the middle school teacher that was shared during this monthly call? I'm giving a presentation to a group of teachers tomorrow morning, and I would love to be able to share it with them. Thanks!

Thank you for the link and for the quick response! When I posted my question late on a Friday night, I did not really expect to get a response in time for the Saturday morning presentation. You rock!!

Thanks Aimee! For now - just use the direct short link to that portion of the monthly call: All of the videos are going to be release one at a time in the month ahead on CCL's social media streams and will be announced featured on CCL Community as they are unveiled.
