Contemplate your own perspective on the climate crisis.We live in a world where the health of our planet is in the headlines almost every day, and where talk around the kitchen table includes topics like rising sea levels, extreme weather and loss of biodiversity. The public policy debate about climate changes looms large globally, and as individuals we seek opportunities to make change in our lives and communities.
