Transforming the Conversation

What difference does it make if we really listen to the stories that people and places have to tell about climate change? Renowned climate scientist and communicator Katherine Hayhoe says the most important thing we can do in response to climate change is to talk to each other about it.

What does it take to restore our broken relationships with each other, and with our planet?  In the summer of 2021, 16 riders and their leaders were transformed by a journey, listening to the diverse voices of our country’s communities, experiencing a simple closeness to the land, and bringing their faith traditions of peace and justice as a unique lens on the climate crisis.

What’s happening next?
The story is not finished.  Thanks to the generous donation of many, we’re able to work on producing a video chronically the stories and impact of this trip.  Watch for news on this production in November 2021!
