Halton Climate Collective Reads

The Halton Climate Collective Reads campaign continues to engage our community about the complex issues of climate change as we read our next book, Sheila Watt-Cloutier’sThe Right to be Cold. The book "explores the parallels between safeguarding the Arctic and the survival of Inuit culture—and ultimately the world—in the face of past, present, and future environmental degradation. Sheila Watt-Cloutier passionately argues that climate change is a human rights issue and one to which all of us on the planet are inextricably linked. The Right to Be Cold is the culmination of Watt-Cloutier’s regional, national, and international work over the last twenty-five years, weaving historical traumas and current issues such as climate change, leadership, and sustainability in the Arctic into her personal story to give a coherent and holistic voice to an important subject".

Save the date: Join us on November 19 for a virtual author talk - more details to come! The #HCCReads campaign is a joint project with the libraries of Oakville, Burlington, Halton Hills and Milton, HDSB, Greening Sacred Spaces Halton-Peel, and the Halton Climate Collective (HCC).
