Nurturing Futures in the Face of Climate Change

with: Aynsley Klassen

Children today will live with the complex and cumulative impacts of climate change throughout their lifespan. How do we nurture them in this context? What practices do we cultivate? What ideas might we compost? What are our responsibilities? This gathering is an invitation to explore community, connection, and creativity through critical conversations about how we move forward in the face of climate change.
