Description 

Where does change begin? Addressing the climate challenge requires incremental and transformational change on both personal and systemic levels. That means altering our personal habits as citizens, consumers, employees and parents.

At the same time, society needs to fundamentally modernize the food, transportation, building and energy systems. That mind blowing amount of change is so daunting, it’s no wonder people look at the scale of the challenge and want to skip away into the happy land of denial. How can we think about change — and how do our words shape our behavior? Will factors like power, social status and morality affect the transition to a green economy? Join us for a conversation on transforming our systems and ourselves with Amanda Ravenhill, executive director at the Buckminster Fuller Institute.

High school students who attend this event in person are eligible to apply for a Climate One Arctic Adventurer Scholarship, an annual award that supports one student on a trip to the Arctic to learn about energy and climate.
