New Book: The Climate Action Almanac

Our Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University has just launched The Climate Action Almanac, a free digital collection of fiction, nonfiction, and art exploring positive climate futures, grounded in real science and in the complexities of diverse human and physical geographies. The book, which imagines climate action as growing up and out from local contexts, rather than imposed from on high, is presented in partnership with the MIT Press and supported by the ClimateWorks Foundation.

The Almanac features 8 individual works of climate fiction, along with 15 essays, 12 pieces of art, and 2 dialogues with global climate experts. It includes perspectives from writers and artists representing 17 different countries from around the globe, from Argentina, Norway, and China to Nigeria, Germany, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, and more.

I hope that you’ll give the Almanac a look and share it with colleagues and students. We also welcome you to consider using pieces from the collection in courses and reading groups—please drop me a note if I can help with those kinds of educational or community uses of the material.
