Climate Odyssey

Climate justice, as with all forms of justice, is an ongoing journey with many adventures, triumphs, obstacles, and losses.

People may be reluctant to enter into the fray for lack of time, confidence, skills and the potential for intensity and burnout.

To grow a strong and diverse climate justice movement, these concerns of the heart and spirit need to be addressed.

The Climate Odyssey program offers experiences, events, and perspectives that acknowledge the complicated and emotional challenges of climate justice work for those already engaged and open doors of possibility to those who are not yet active.

Come together to build effective community and ongoing solidarity.
