Changemakers book launch- Pender Is. Library
Pender Island Public Library presents:
Changemakers: Embracing hope, taking action, and transforming the world
A book launch with a difference: meet the authors Fay Weller and Mary Wilson
Saturday June 16, 4:00 pm.
Changemakers is a guidebook for ordinary people who want to create a new society now. The first section explores the idea of transformative change — what it is, what difference it makes, and how it is connected to learning. The second section explores powerful new stories of everyday people who have challenged traditional understandings of food, shelter, energy, transportation, waste, and economics, and transformed aspects of their lives, their communities, and wider society.
Drawing from tools in their book, Mary and Fay will engage the audience in exploring how we all have the power to be change makers.
