The future

The choices we make now—not just about how we live our own lives, but the decisions we make together—will determine the health of our environment, communities, jobs, and economies. Puneet, Carolyn, Thomas, David, Edith, Heather, Leanne, James, and Tanya all know our lives will be disrupted by climate change. But they also see a hopeful future, and have a vision for what it means to live a good, green life. What’s yours? How will you help make it happen?
