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? Follow the riders as they are transformed by this 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 this week? (July 25-July 28)
This is it, the last few days of the trip! Riders are excited to have a group of 8 additional folks joining for these last few days.
The riders arrive in Washington DC on Wed., we’ll have an informal celebration around 1pm on the mall. Shortly after that, riders will be off to speak to their Congressional offices, telling the story of the ride and how current legislation is important for climate issues.
From there, it’s off to Hyattsville Mennonite Church for the last townhall. Join in person or virtually at 7 pm (ET) for a panel of riders who will recount stories from ride, and how it has affected their thinking about climate issues.
The riding ends, but the climate journey will continue! In a summer of history-breaking heat waves, floods, droughts, etc around the world, we’re keen to build on the success of the climate ride to make a difference. Stay with CSCS as we keep you updated on more activities.
Help Us to Continue the Journey!
