This is not a story of loss. It is one of hope and resilience, at a time when it is needed. The global COVID pandemic has shaken our certainty in the future and has made us refocus our priorities, with our health and the health of our environment being at the top of the list. Every year it seems more of an effort is put towards mitigating the effects of climate change, yet more communities are dealing with the impacts of wildfires, droughts, and flooding, making it feel like nothing is being done and nothing can be done, but there is hope.
