Concerned about Climate Change? 
You can meet Professor Harald Welzer on Monday, March 17. Professor Welzer is the author of the book Climate Wars: What People Will Be Killed For in the 21st Century (read a review here) and has now initiated a foundation that collects positive "can-do" stories from people who have chosen to radically change their lives in the face of climate change and environmental degradation. The foundation hopes that these stories will inspire others to follow suit.
