The SCNs’ Office of Ecological Sustainability hosted a book discussion for the book Under the Sky We Make: How to be Human in a Warming World. Over 170 registered for this event, mostly women religious and their associate members.

Participants discussed the book in small groups, then were joined by author Dr. Kimberly Nicholas, a professor of sustainability at Lund University in Sweden. Dr. Nicholas was interviewed by Carolyn Cromer, Director of Ecological Sustainability. Dr. Nicholas spoke about those activities that have a high impact on reducing carbon emissions, as well as issues of equity in climate change and climate solutions. Subsequent questions from participants included carbon emissions from industrialized agriculture and how we can ensure a just transition for working people as we change energy systems.
