Description
Graphic designer Ken Ward and community organizer Andree Zaleska, leaders in the Massachusetts affiliate of 350.org, discuss how ordinary citizens can contribute to finding solutions to global warming. Partners Ken and Andree renovated an abandoned corner store in the Jamaica Plain section of Boston, Massachusetts, dubbing it the Jamaica Plain Green House, and making it the first zero-carbon home in Boston. While governments debate climate change policy and researchers investigate its causes and model its effects, Ward and Zaleska argue that this problem is bigger than any one of us, and it will affect all of our lives. This talk is part of Cambridge Forum's After Copenhagen: Global Climate Change Conference, recorded by Steve MacAusland.
