Book Description
Changemaker Attitude

How do we do our part to save and preserve the environment without feeling overwhelmed and discouraged?

Every day, we are inundated with news about our impending doomsday: the massive, irreparable damage we have caused our planet with consequences we are now starting to see play out in real time. The Changemaker Attitude: Why Individuals Matter in the Fight Against Climate Change was written to inspire a more optimistic outlook on climate change and encourage individuals to take action and confront this overwhelming issue.

In this book, you'll learn about young eco-innovators who are changing the world, such as:

  • Alhaji Bah, who created a company that makes handcrafted paper bags and briquettes made from coconut shells, using his last $20.
  • Arpit Dhupar, whose company turns pollution from diesel generator exhaust into ink.
  • Angel Wu, a student who is currently trying to turn organic waste materials from the city of Philadelphia into packaging material.

The Changemaker Attitude is full of positivity, hope, and a new vision for the future.

About the Author

As an active outdoor enthusiast, Jordan Fox has always valued nature. She began to notice how the constant influx of negative news surrounding climate change was paralyzing those around her from taking action. Jordan's passion for the environment led her to write The Changemaker Attitude while studying international relations and engineering entrepreneurship at the University of Pennsylvania.

When not outside or writing, Jordan obsesses over gluten-free donuts, skiing or hiking in her home state of Colorado, or traveling the world in search of new delights and inspiration.

Discussion Schedule

Two discussion sessions will be held as follows:

Session 1:  August 6, Chapters 1-5
Session 2:  August 27, Chapters 6-9, Conclusion
