Inside the Greenhouse Newsletter Issue #17
Read on for some samplings of our current activities and ongoing commitments
This summer – amid many intersecting challenges in our world – we have continued to move forward with Inside the Greenhouse efforts in the spaces of research, teaching and engagement in the spaces of creative climate communications in the public sphere.
Among those intersections, we recognize that successfully advancing climate change engagement in the 21st century requires confrontation with environmental and institutional racism. With that in mind, Inside the Greenhouse expresses its profound support of Black Lives Matter (and the many movements towards racial justice that improve our world) by sharing these sources to support the integration of anti-racism into the communication of climate change.
