Book Club Program

Focused on the questioning and debating process at the core of critical thinking, this program follows a structured learning path.

Why join?

Have you ever wished to convey clearly the major concepts and ideas behind environmental, political, and economic issues? Based on the pivotal work of some of the best authors, the One Home Planet book club is designed to help you do just that.

In addition to the regular use of relevant discussion threads and private chats, book club members will:

  • Deepen their critical reflection with two questions per week and two to six questions per book chapter (see examples1);
  • Find a training buddy and build quality relationships in a dedicated group space;
  • Assess their personal progress when preparing with a specific set of questions for live group calls at the end of each book chapter study (see examples in footnote).
  • Start with a live preparation week that ensures all practical matters are addressed beforehand and, most importantly, everyone feels welcomed in the group and is genuinely seen and heard during the book study.

Who is it for?

Let’s be clear: Everyone. What matters is not your academic achievements but your will to ask questions or help answer those of others. If you are open-minded and respectful, your presence will always be a gift to others.

What about the more immediate concerns of time and money?

  • Regarding time, the pace of study, two questions per week, will adapt to anyone’s busy schedule. Besides, you do not need to read the book to be fully part of a study group since all chapters are summarized in the website’s Book Club posts.
  • Regarding money, the subscription is free for the first month, so you can see if the book club formula suits you. It then costs just $12 monthly, regardless of how many groups you register with and aside from your benefit as an affiliate.

There is just one thing left to do.
