The Massachusetts Library System is partnering with Communities Responding to Extreme Weather (CREW) for Climate Prep Week to help libraries and their communities better prepare for extreme weather events. The theme for Climate Prep Week 2020 is "Climate Resilience is Social Resilience." In lieu of Covid-19 and recent critical conversations around racial justice in society, CREW and MLS have organized several central virtual events for libraries and their communities around the intersections of climate resilience, racial justice, and social resilience.
Join us for a conversation on How Repair Events Can Transform Our Throwaway Culture with Elizabeth Knight and John Wackman authors of Repair Revolution. This event will look at how repair events in libraries and other spaces are helping bring people together around common goals of sustainability, stewardship, community resilience, as well as social and climate justice. This conversation will be led by Blue Marble Librarian, Gabrielle Griffis.
