Civic Ecology Lab's latest book explores how we can harness our social networks to fight the climate crisis. Against notions of the lone environmental crusader, Marianne Krasny shows us the power of "network climate action"—the idea that our own ordinary acts can influence and inspire those close to us. Through this spread of climate-conscious practices and advocacy, our individual actions become collective ones that can eventually effect widespread change.


Whether by inviting family, friends, or colleagues to a plant-rich meal or by becoming activists at climate nonprofits, we can forge the social norms and shared identities that lead to change. With easy-to-follow dos and don'ts, In This Together shows us a practical and hopeful way forward into our shared future.

Features cartoons by former New Yorker cartoonist Emily Hopkins.
