It’s easy to get discouraged these days with daunting issues like environmental injustice, climate change, and biodiversity loss, particularly with sensationalized “negative news.” Yet, if we look objectively we can find plenty of positive, inspirational social movements tackling the biggest environmental issues of the day. News outlets like Yes! Magazine and Reasons to be Cheerful were created precisely for the purpose of reminding us that billions of people around the world are joining together to work toward environmental justice and ways of living that safeguard the planet for generations to come. I welcome you to join me for the next several weeks to survey some of the most inspirational environmental movements of our time around the globe. We’ll learn collectively from cases you, your fellow students and I identify.
