A Journey to Understanding

With something as big, complex, scary and life changing as climate change, how do we talk about it? Coastal communities everywhere are on the front lines of our changing world, but not everyone is on the same page. Climb aboard with Will to hear about a true adventure he embarked on to better understand how people in coastal communities talk about climate change. Traveling in a 16-foot sailing kayak, Will set out from Miami, Florida, traveling 1,100 miles over three and a half months to finish in Norfolk, Virginia. Now he is back to share what he has learned, what you can do, and hopefully, to instill a bit of adventure along the way.
