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.

Available March 2023.

 Peter Lehner from Earthjustice will spotlight opportunities to use the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Farm Bill (both the current law and improvements we will seek in 2023), Inflation Reduction Act, and SEC regulations to drive even faster, systemic change in the ways we produce our food. After Peter's presentation, we will have opportunities to write letters to Congress supporting science-based legislation to reduce greenhouse gases.
