This Saturday I marched in a very wet March for Science in DC.

It was an honor to be in a room with some awesome conservation leaders and scientists.

I recorded stories from eight teens, covering everything from mass extinctions to permafrost melting, ocean acidification to water quality issues.

Christchurch People’s Climate March

Art and activism at work:

an aside:

I don’t have a way to monitor sound or block the interference of the wind on my camera when I make videos right now, which is v. frustrating. It was a windy day. I chose the least windy takes to share with you all. I’m working on fixing this so that future videos can be ever better.

Thanks for being here & for giving me the opportunity to play around with a new form.

Hey world,

I’m riding my bicycle to the People’s Climate March in Christchurch, New Zealand on Nov. 28, 2015.

Last September I attended the People’s Climate March in NYC among a crowd of 400,000 activists. I was a drop in that ocean.

yours truly with the epic organizer / magician Collin Rees (@collinrees) / NYC People’s Climate March / September 21, 2014

400000people

September 21, 2014: I was there. I marched. I listened. I recorded 3+ hours of stories from the people I met. I cried three times. I danced. I was silent and I was loud. I have never felt such powerful energy in my life.

Will you be attending a People’s Climate March this weekend? There are events kicking off all over the globe. Check out www.peoplesclimate.org to find an event near you. There’s a map of locations here: www.peoplesclimate.org/actions/map/

“Water is worth more than gold.” The People’s Climate March in NYC was electric.

Keep on keepin’ on. Your voice has value.

To change everything, we need everyone, everywhere.

Tell your story.
