We're thrilled to announce a special evening with Gary Ferguson and Mary Clare, authors of Full Ecology, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28 at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, in the auditorium.
The book focuses on how concerned readers might confront the climate crisis without losing heart.
It's easy to feel overwhelmed in the face of global climate breakdown. So how might we develop the inner resolve to confront it? Full Ecology, a collaboration between social-cultural psychologist Mary M. Clare and longtime science writer Gary Ferguson, suggests a path forward. Breaking the modern impulse to see humans as separate from nature, Clare and Ferguson encourage us to learn from the "supremely methodical and highly improvisational" natural systems that touch our lives. True change, they argue, begins with us stopping and questioning assumptions about our place in the world.
From this process of reflection, they offer us an alternative blueprint for acting in ecologically healthy ways, and for inspiring others to do the same. Rather than proposing a ten-step plan to save the earth, this book encourages a more elemental rethinking of our connections to nature, and of how such connections might be strengthened for the common good.
Practical and poetic, scientific and spiritual, Full Ecology presents a strong, nourishing foundation for climate action.
Full Ecology is one of the most important books ever written on the climate crisis.
