Community Discussion on Climate-Crisis Solutions

The Ridges Sanctuary is hosting a community discussion series on solutions to the climate crisis. 

Discussions will be structured around topics covered in Paul Hawken’s new book, Regeneration: Ending the Climate Crisis in One Generation, which seeks to end the climate crisis through the lens of six frameworks: equity, reduce, protect, sequester, influence and support. The book also offers a sense of hope and brings justice and community to the center of achievable solutions.


“Through the series, we hope to connect the concepts from the book to solutions that we can take, both as individuals and as a collective,” said Andy Gill, The Ridges’ executive director. 

Ridges staff members will moderate the discussions, which will include community experts who will offer their perspectives and share how their work intersects with the climate crisis.

Discussions will be offered in person and via Zoom every third Tuesday, 6-7:30 pm. The scheduled topics are Oceans and Forests, Jan. 18; Wilding and Land, Feb. 8; People and Cities, March 1; Food, March 22; and Energy and Industry, April 12.

Regeneration is available at the Nature Store in The Ridges’ Cook-Albert Fuller Nature Center, and limited copies may also be available at Door County libraries.
