Climate Circle

Welcome to the Ahimsa climate circle! We are a small group of climate justice advocates who started off as members of an All We Can Save Circle in October 2020. The beautiful anthology furthered our desire for a deeper dialogue on the climate crisis. We also discovered how much we still didn’t know about the problem or the many ways in which it could be addressed. We have therefore decided to carve out a dedicated space in our lives to read and discuss all things climate.

We meet every other Thursday at 12.30pm Pacific Time (3.30pm Eastern time). Please email circle coordinator Shagun Chopra (shagun11@gmail.com) if you would like to join.

Our schedule for 2021 is as follows:
