  • Climate Justice & Solutions

    Advisor: Stephanie Malmgren

    The purpose of this club is to come together to learn about historical and current climate injustices, so we can gain skills and knowledge to better engage in climate justice and equity work. We seek to identify possible beneficial solutions that can be deployed to improve our global climate crisis at a local scale. We will enhance our members' worldviews with different perspectives using stories to address the difficult conversations around global climate change. We will work to engage in community service projects locally, and possibly abroad, to help communities adapt to, and mitigate the effects of, global climate change -- and encourage others to participate in the cause.
