Introduction to Project Drawdown
Wednesday, June 19 | 7-9 p.m.
Join us for a workshop facilitated by Joseph Montuori, Educator and Sustainability Advocate, about Project Drawdown, the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming.
Humanity has the means at hand. Nothing new needs to be invented. Our work is to accelerate the knowledge and growth of what’s possible. Learn more about Project DRAWDOWN and meet others in our community who want to actively work towards making a difference.
Pick up your book this week and get ready to join the discussion! Groups will be meeting at 8 different locations in town between July 8 and August 2. Stay tuned for meeting dates and locations.
This year, Putnam Valley will be reading Into the Beautiful North by Luis Alberto Urrea.
Nineteen-year-old Nayeli works at a taco shop in her Mexican village and dreams about her father, who journeyed to the US when she was young. She realizes that there are almost no men in town. While watching The Magnificent Seven, Nayeli decides to go north herself and recruit her own “Siete Magníficos” to repopulate her hometown and protect it from the bandidos who plan on taking it over. With compassion and humor, Urrea offers a fresh take on the hero’s journey and explores how we may not be as different from each other as we might think.
