I spent last weekend in Oakland at Canticle Farm alongside fourteen other Climate Justice Storytellers representing youth from across the United States. We’re traveling to Morocco this November as youth delegates at COP22, the UN talks on climate change.
We focused our first few days on doing a small-scale version of Joanna Macy’s Work that Reconnects. Then, we asked ourselves the question: What would it look like to finish COP22 more energized than when we arrived?
It’s an honor to be a part of this group of dynamic climate activists. We stand with Standing Rock.
Greetings from DesMoines, Iowa!
For the last few days I have been driving across the country with Caroline Catlin.
This mini-project is unfolding into beautiful, face-to-face interconnectivity on the move. I’m grateful for this time to stop and reflect.. and to catch up on episodes of On Being.
In San Francisco I’ll be attending a meet-up of climate activists going to Morocco this November as part of the youth delegation with SustainUS. Then it’s back to the northeast for a few months of coaching rowing at Phillips Exeter before packing up the bicycle and flying to Marrakech.
What piece of advice would you give to your past, present, or future self?

Big love from the Whanganui River,
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.
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/
Keep on keepin’ on. Your voice has value.
To change everything, we need everyone, everywhere.
Tell your story.
Over & out,
