She discussed a recent discussion she helped facilitate among young faith leaders from across the globe, and how climate action should help inform their work. She also discussed an upcoming trip to Puerto Rico to create a sustainable farming course experience for Duke students, and more.

Each Thursday “News on the Hill” centers conversations around climate and sustainability for our Climate Thursday segment.
