Denver Beck is a junior Goshen College student majoring in sustainability studies and minoring in art. Denver is a member of the Goshen College soccer team and loves playing all kinds of sports as well as listening to music, going on “ambitious outdoor adventures” and playing his guitar. Denver is originally from Vermont, but more recently calls Archbold, Ohio home.
As someone studying sustainability, Denver believes that making changes to systems and policies is “really vital to make bigger steps towards addressing climate change.” Some recent changes that give Denver hope include the cancelation of the Keystone pipeline and the US’s recommitment to the Paris Climate Accords.
“When I first heard about the (Climate) Ride,” Denver said, “I thought it was a great opportunity to combine two things I’m really passionate about… being outside, being active, and climate action.”
What is Denver looking forward to on the trip? “I’m most looking forward to the simplicity and joy of having one goal every day, just getting up and biking.”
