Parents’ Guide to Climate Revolution

Saturday, August 11, 2018

Author and activist Mary DeMocker talks about her new book.


Mary DeMocker will talk about her new book, “The Parents’ Guide to Climate Revolution: 100 Ways to Build a Fossil-Free Future, Raise Empowered Kids, and Still Get a Good Night's Sleep.”

The book shares hundreds of wide-ranging ideas, including how to embrace “simplicity parenting”; avoid dead-end science debates; teach kids about the power of creative protest; and make lifestyle changes that deepen family bonds, improve moods, and reduce negative impact on the Earth.

Mary DeMocker has had a hand in many arts, including as a harpist, film set dresser, children’s playwright, and nonfiction writer. Currently, she uses the arts to mobilize for climate justice. She is co-founder and creative director of Eugene’s chapter of the international climate action group 350.org. In conjunction with the 2015 Paris climate talks, she designed and co-led the youth-centered Global Climate March and Collaborative Art Project. Winner of the 2008 Kay Snow Award for Nonfiction, she has published in The Sun, EcoWatch, Common Dreams, ISLE, Mothering.com, and Spirituality and Health.
