Description

We'd like to welcome you to our first bookclub!

July's pick is "Rise & Resist – How to change the World" by Clare Press.

'Rise & Resist takes a wild trip through the new activism sweeping the world. The political march is back in a big way, as communities rally to build movements for environmental and social justice. But today's context calls for increasingly creative strategies to make our voices heard.

Crossing the globe, Clare Press meets passionate change-makers who believe in the power of the positive. From eco warriors and zero wasters to knitting nannas, introvert craftivists to intersectional feminists, they're all up for a revolution of sorts. Are you? Join Press as she tracks the formation of a new counterculture, united by a grand purpose: to rethink how we live today to build a more sustainable tomorrow.'


What you can expect from 'Rise & Resist':

- Be hugely inspired to act, it'll make you get up and do something

- You'll learn how to be a creative activist
(Hint: you don't have to be marching in the street if that's not your thing)

- It will give you faith that humanity can and will tackle the biggest threats we're facing as long as we focus on our communities


Informal drinks and a chat about the book and some mingeling afterwards.
You don't have to have read the book cover to cover. If you're interested in the subject or only skim read it you can still join.


We're looking forward to meeting you!
