CSCR believes in and actively practices collaboration with a variety of local, regional, and national organizations representing educational environmental advocacy and activism. We build community through our local events– clean ups, cookouts, workshops, seminars, and summits– to name a few. We build our community through our lecture series that brings prominent scientists, activists, and policy makers to speak in Cohasset.

WGBH Forum with celebrated climate change author and activist, Bill McKibben

From PBS, the ever-popular CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR talks with author Jonathan Safran Foer about “eating animals” and his new book, We are the Weather.

Jonathan Safran Foer on His New Book “We Are the Weather”
Today, young people all over the world participate in the global climate strike. Fighting the climate crisis is a personal and moral decision for author Jonathan Safran Foer, who has gone from writing acclaimed novels to penning impassioned non-fiction decrying climate inaction. His latest book “We Are the Weather” explains how “saving the planet begins at breakfast.”

 A third global offering features “an emotionally charged speech” by world renowned climate crisis activist, Greta Thunberg, a courageous young woman admired globally, but mimicked and mocked by President Trump. It’s not Greta who needs “to chill” and “go to the movies.” And it’s not Greta who has a problem as Mr. Trump might want us to believe; no, it’s us. It’s we who have the problem, for come the end of our current COVID quarantine, so many will be delighted to just return to normal, aka “business as usual” for all of our institutions. Might we not, as a community, ponder some needed changes?

‘You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,’ climate activist Greta Thunberg has told world leaders at the 2019 UN climate action summit in New York. In an emotionally charged speech, she accused them of ignoring the science behind the climate crisis, saying: ‘We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth – how dare you!’
