THE BBB CLUB to benefit the charlie bartsch brownfield scholarship fund

Why a brownfields book club and who should join? 

The lessons of the canon of environmental literature -- from Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring” to Robert Bilott’s, “Exposure" --  should be learned by every brownfield practitioner, community organizer, municipal employee, student, concerned citizen, and legislator.  It is important to understand our place in the arc of environmental consciousness.

The seminal books recount iconic environmental sagas and weave together the roles of incredible scientists, journalists, citizen activists, and civil servants who dared to question the status quo and, in doing so, dramatically changed our understanding of the nexus between industrialization, public health, and the environment.  The takeaway lesson of each book is that the story continues with us-- our contributions and our ability to effect profound and lasting change.   

In the book club, seasoned industry practitioners, academics, curious laypersons, and ambitious students will explore the concepts of path dependency, deep history, the evolution of scientific understanding, and even the impact of serendipity on the ultimate outcome of each story. 

How often does the book club meet?

Every first and third Wednesday of each month at 7 PM. 

Where do we get the brew?
