A "Climate Talks" Update & Apply to Be a GTF!

With my travel schedule as whirlwind as ever, it's been hard to find the time to update this blog! However, I have two exciting things that I just had to share with you this week. 

You may recall that a few months ago I was a part of an exciting documentary project called Climate Talks. This project has become an ongoing environmental education effort to get more people talking about climate change, and this week a very special someone joined in on our conversation: Justin Trudeau! The climate kids (as we like to call them) created some questions especially for Trudeau and this week he is sharing videos of his answers to them. For the next little while I will be guest-tweeting for Madeleine Co., the Toronto women's art collective who are the brains and talent behind this whole thing, to reply to any feedback you have for us. You can take part in this conversation on Twitter here or here. We look forward to hearing from you! 

You also may recall that many months ago I first found out I was selected to be a 2015 Grosvenor Teacher Fellow. Applications for 2017 are now open and are due December 31, 2016 at 11:59pm EST. If you want an incredible life-changing and career-shaping experience to learn and teach about the world, you should apply! On the other hand, if you want to maintain the status quo and keep your life exactly as it is now, you should definitely not apply, because the experience will leave you changed forever.
