A World Record Book Signing

We’re all authors of our future on this planet, and the The Carbon Almanac is a shared touchstone, a place to start a conversation.

On July 16th 2022, on all six habitable continents, in twenty one countries, thousands of people came together and did just that - they engaged in conversation and signed The Carbon Almanac. 

Their collective actions established the event as the first book signing to span all six habitable continents in 24 hours and as such a new World Record was established (“Largest Most-Global Book Signing” in history).

Signings kicked off in New Zealand and then followed the sun around the earth to come to rest on the shores of Honolulu, Hawaii. 

From Bookstores, to Breweries, to Little Free Libraries, connections were made and a powerful movement of systematic change was kicked off. A complete listing of all participating venues appears below.
