“The Summer Institute was transformational, not simply because of the content presented, connections with peers and mentors forged, and climate education resources provided, but because of the way information was shared and conversations led. The facilitators modeled a respect for all beings that underpins their social and climate justice perspective; this created a safe space for learning and quietly underscored the urgency of their message.”
