Join International House and the UChicago Institute of Politics as we welcome journalist Tatiana Schlossberg to dive into the question at the center of the climate change debate: how much impact can individual actions have, and what level of change can only be achieved through systemic reform?

Tatiana Schlossberg's new book, Inconspicuous Consumption: The Environmental Impact You Don't Know You Have, traces the environmental impacts of even the most mundane human activities, identifying many connections between consumerism and climate change. Ms. Schlossber has written about climate change and the environment for The New York Times,The Atlantic, Bloomberg View, and more.
