The Carbon Almanac project is starting to focus on the book launch date, currently set for July 16, 2022. But as you may know, the supply chain around paper (and therefore book publishing) has been struggling in the last couple of years. And that is still the case, so we wait and keep our fingers crossed.
But there’s a lot more happening within this project than just the book. So this is an update on other media that’s being produced in tandem with the book, and is already available.
The Carbon Almanac Supplementary media
- Website: You can find it here. Pre-order a copy of the book while you’re there. Scroll down to see a video, a link to find all of us who worked on the project (“Meet the Contributors”), quotes and more.
- Curated Resources: This is in the top menu bar of the website, and is what I’ve been mostly working on the last couple of months. Tell me if you find a mistake or something’s not working! For most of us, a great starting place is this section called Read, Watch, Listen, Act. I’m making my way through the list, and here’s a few I can highly recommend:
- Educator’s Guide: I had a tiny hand in this project too. I did one round of proofreading, and sat with one of my favourite teachers to go through it and get some solid feedback. It’s a set of full lesson plans with resources, activities, worksheets and more. The guide hasn’t made its way to being publicly available yet. But, insider info, if you know a K-12 educator who could make use of a climate teaching resource like this, here’s the link to download it.
- Email: You can subscribe to our email called The Daily Difference. It delivers daily, bite-sized bits of inspiration, education, and action towards making our planet a better place. For example, a recent email gave information about the importance of wetlands in sequestering carbon, with a link to this short video.
Lots of media to take in, but I’ll still be very excited to hold a copy of the book in my hands.
