Join Israel Riders around the country for an online book club discussion: We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast. Jonathan Safran Foer explores the central global dilemma of our time – climate change – and considers how saving the planet involves a great reckoning with ourselves, and our reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future. It all starts with what we eat, and don’t eat, for breakfast. Only collective action will save our home and way of life – a topic that has now become more relevant than ever.
As a cyclist, you’re likely familiar with how transportation impacts the planet. You’re also probably really familiar with how your food choices impact your cycling. But how aware are you of how your food choices impact the planet? As part of our discussion we’ll have the opportunity to both learn with Becky O’Brien, Hazon’s Director of Food & Climate, and explore how the book content relates to the organizations the Israel Ride supports.
It is strongly encouraged that you read the book prior to the book club discussion. We will be using Hazon’s discussion guide.
