Join facilitators from Sustainable Calgary, Arusha and EcoLiving Events to discuss themes and issues affecting the city and world today.
When: Third Wednesday of each month, September – May, from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Where: Pages Books, 1135 Kensington Road NW, 403-283-6655
It is free and everyone is welcome, even if you haven’t read the book.
Please join us for a free and lively discussion of important issues facing us today. The goal of the Sustainability Book Club is to share books and host discussions that help us understand the world and our place in it in a different way. This can change the way we experience the world and the way we act in our day-to-day lives, opening new possibilities for environmental sustainability, social justice and peace.
Feel free to join us and drop in. It is the issues and themes that spark the discussion. Everyone is welcome to join in for one session or all of them. It is your opinion on the issues that builds an interesting discussion.
The Book Club is sponsored by Pages Books, Sustainable Calgary, Arusha and Eco-Living Events.
