CLIMATE WINS

So much of our media is mired in gloom and doom–and don't get us wrong, there's a lot to be wary of when it comes to our fight for a just, livable future in the face of intensifying injustices and climate change. But, there's also SO much good work being done, too, that rarely gets highlighted. We've added this "climate wins" section to our weekly newsletter to counterbalance the bad news and reinvigorate our community in this good and hard work by celebrating wins.

If you've got a climate win you're excited about, big or small, email us at sustainable.dartmouth@dartmouth.edu, and we'll include it in next week's newsletter! According to the IPCC, every action that prevents further degrees of global warming, no matter what scale, is meaningful.
