Baileys Harbor, Wis. (December 27, 2021) – The Ridges Sanctuary is hosting a community discussion series on solutions to the climate crisis. Discussions will be structured around topics covered in the new book, Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation, authored by Paul Hawken, Environmentalist and Best-Selling Author.
Regeneration seeks to end the climate crisis through the lens of six frameworks: equity, reduce, protect, sequester, influence, and support. In the book, Hawken offers a sense of hope to the reader and brings justice and community to the center of achievable solutions.
“We are excited to involve the community in these discussions,” says Andy Gill, Ridges Executive Director. “Through the series, we hope to connect the concepts from the book to solutions that we can take, both as individuals and as a collective.”
Ridges + Regeneration discussions will be moderated by Ridges staff members and include community experts who will offer perspectives and speak to how their work intersects with the climate crisis.
Discussions will be offered both in person and online through Zoom, beginning January 18th and will run every third Tuesday from 6:00pm-7:30pm. Dates and topics covered are:
January 18 – Oceans & Forests
February 8 – Wilding & Land
March 1 – People & Cities
March 22 – Food
April 12 – Energy & Industry
The book Regeneration is available at the Ridges Nature Store in the Cook-Fuller Nature Center in Baileys Harbor, open Wednesday through Sunday from 10:00am-4:00pm. Limited copies may also be available at Door County libraries.
