Academy Book Circle: All We Can Save

Embark on a shared journey with leaders of the climate movement as Drexel and Academy scientists, staff and supporters come together for our first Academy Book Circle.

All We can save, truth, courage, and solutions for the climate crisis 

Together, we’ll read All We Can Save, an anthology of essays, poetry and art by 60 women of diverse backgrounds, curated by climate leaders Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Dr. Katharine Wilkinson. All We Can Save seeks to encourage climate leadership that is rooted in compassion, connection, creativity and collaboration. Click the button below to register for the Academy Book Circle!
