Climate change challenge: Start somewhere. Do something. Spread the word.
Where does each of us fit in the growing movement/s to slow, stop, and mitigate climate change? Individual acts like recycling and planting trees are great, yet corporations and governments can negate - or multiply - those effects in a blink.

A Yale Program on Climate Change Communication survey revealed that 58% of Americans are alarmed or concerned, and 17% are undecided about climate change. That’s a majority who could move on effective action. My next contributions will build on various networks and sectors I’ve worked in over the last 40-plus years; looking for force multipliers. As an Agent of Change – hired or volunteer - I will use my skills of assessing community and organization dynamics as well as communicating clearly and quickly to resonate with specific audiences.

Good advice from an artist who also drives climate action groups: “Don’t expect [immediate] results. The arc will outlive you. Do this work in community with others you enjoy, and stay optimistic. If you hold out for the perfect, you don’t get the possible.”
