Julien Joy (RPCV Ethiopia, 2016-2018) is currently a Master's candidate in Public Policy at Harvard Kennedy School. He wrote this article on "The Peace Corps and Climate Change" in support of "climate adaptation and resiliency programming," identified and adapted at the community level in true Peace Corps style.
With that article as a lead-in, please join us for an hour-long conversation on how RPCVs are working to address climate change within their communities as well as nationwide and around the world. Help us connect the dots as we develop a shared agenda that brings together RPCV advocates of many other issues and enables them to collaborate together on climate change. Share your thoughts on setting goals and finding practical ways for moving forward.
