My local bookstore, Porter Square Books, has monthly talks called Be the Change. They bring in speakers to talk about different topics of civic engagement and social impact. Today, I attended the Be the Change talk on climate change and civic engagement, featuring two Sunrise Movement Boston leaders and Francis Moore Lappé, the author of Diet for a Small Planet (and 18 other books). There was a real opportunity here to connect the dots between political action and climate action. Alas, the discussion was a bit meandering and anecdotal.
