Summary

We are facing planet-sized challenges. Climate change and environmental crises can seem immobilizing, and we can fall into the temptation of thinking that our efforts don't really matter. But it's not just about what we do as isolated individuals. It's about what we can do when we mobilize together as a movement and combine for community action.
