Climate Journey arrived in Paris for COP21 on November 25th, 2015 after 5 months, 3 days, 27 rainstorms, 91 homes, 18 ferries and 4979 kilometers of bicycling. We traveled through New England, Atlantic Canada, Iceland, Scandinavia, Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland & the UK, writing, photographing, and collaging, telling stories of individuals and communities mobilizing for a just transition to a climate-stable future.
We met infinite inspirational people, had endless unforgettable conversations and learned over and over the strength and resilience of the global grassroots climate movement. Our goal was for our infinite conversations on the road, and media coverage and digital storytelling for followers from afar, to be a tool for inspiring followers to take meaningful actions in their own communities.
On arrival in Paris we worked inside the United Nations space with SustainUS, a US youth delegation. We shared stories and worked to advance more just policy options through creative actions, traditional and social media. Some of our daily musings from COP21 can be found here.
