Leveraging Literature in a Time of Crisis

Imagine your favorite book. Who are the characters that you loved and lived through? Which books stuck with you long after you closed the binding? Did you view the world differently afterwards? Stories, whether through literature or other visual mediums, shape our understanding of the people and environments around us; what is normal, what is […]

Joy and Love for the Work Ahead

Summer brings a time of frenetic energy—especially for those of us that have lived through the cold winter months. Green lushness explodes and drips around us, the sun rises early and sets late, and it’s nearly impossible to fit in all of the summer festivals and events we want to attend. It is Pride Month, […]

The 411 on SB56: why is this event important for climate policy?

Right now, the SB56 conference is underway in Bonn, Germany. International climate change policy is riddled with acronyms. UNFCCC, COP, L&D, etc. If you’re already overwhelmed, stick with us.

Teach Climate Network: Building Self Efficacy and Shared Power

Action towards climate change solutions has been a target of disinformation in recent years, but education has the power to equip students with the knowledge and resources to understand the evidence-based science behind climate change and take action. When searching for solutions to an issue as complex as climate change, it takes a community with […]

A Radical Culture of Kindness

Last month, we asked you to think about embracing a radical culture of kindness. As happens seemingly more often these days, we are faced with yet another tragedy: a racially motivated mass killing in East Buffalo, New York that also promoted elements of what is coined “eco-facism” and “replacement theory”. We hold the victims of […]

300 Miles for Climate Action

Would you ride your bike 300 miles for a cause you believe in? Climate Generation has a wonderful partnership with Climate Ride, a non-profit organization that organizes charitable hikes and bikes to support environmental causes. Their events raise awareness about climate change to support more than 100 nonprofits on a local and national level. This […]

Resilience and Perseverance in Turbulent Times

As we slowly roll into spring, we are looking forward to getting out more often and the possibility of seeing our communities in person – though still at a distance. One of our great “aha’s” is how different people look and relate on virtual platforms compared to real life. The looks of understanding that feel […]
