Ok, so we’re starting to get the message that we need to act on this whole “we’re killing the planet” thing, and fast. But amongst all the noise about how much trouble we’ve gotten ourselves into, it’s sometimes hard to hear the solutions and see the positive ideas. Enter GreenTOpia, the third installment in Coach House Books’ uTOpia series, which is being released at a party this weekend into our eagerly outstretched arms.
As we previewed last month, GreenTOpia is the right book at the right time from the right people. Featuring an impressive who’s who of the Toronto environmental movement (and beyond), the book promises to cover everything from “gardening the Gardiner” to “the art of salvage” to “drinking less coffee.” In other words, a healthy mix of conventional and non-conventional ideas on how to make our city a more livable place. Contributers include Dale Duncan, John Lorinc, Catherine Nasmith, Keith Stewart and about fifty others.
The launch takes place this Sunday, November 11th at The Gladstone Hotel beginning at 2:00 p.m. The publishers assure us that “Torontoist readers will love the panels, Toronto bands and psychogeographic walk with Shawn Micallef.” You readers sure are known for your love of psychogeographic walks.
