Our Shared Future—The Heart of the Climate Movement

Additional information about this invitational event will be shared as it becomes available.

For the climate movement to gain traction and sustain itself over time, a new kind of bravery is called for. We must find the courage to face the impacts not only of extreme weather, but of the powerful emotional storms that are endemic to this challenge: denial, fear, anger, despair, loss, and grief. We must learn, also, to be brave enough to cultivate compassion for those who have taken refuge in denial and fear. Many of our friends, neighbors, and political adversaries simply don’t know what else to do. The reality of what we face is simply too overwhelming.

This is a time to take the conversation deeper, to build honest reflection into our commitment to action.
