THIS is why I do what I do: My video was just shown to governors from around the world at the Governors' Climate and Forests Task Force meeting in Balikpapan, Indonesia. The campaign aims to get states to collaborate with indigenous communities in the fight to mitigate and adapt to #ClimateChange—regardless of whether the national government is willing to do so. The majority of the states signed on!

Indigenous and local government leaders share their hopes for a collaborative partnership to strengthen and amplify efforts in the fight against deforestation and climate change.

Choti and her little sister, Khiri Village, Bihar, India.

The people of North India's densely populated Ganges River Plain face increasingly frequent hot spells and unreliable precipitation. As a result of climate change, Choti and her peers will have to overcome unprecedented economic and environmental challenges in the decades to come.

Can Scientists & Indigenous People Work Together?

As a young man, Chris Majors moved to Indonesia to live and learn amongst a seafaring indigenous group called the Bajau. Today, he runs a marine biology research station just across the water from the Bajau village where he spent years as a researcher and advocate. In this interview, he speaks from personal experience about how scientists can find common ground with indigenous people who live in the environments they work to conserve.

Chamba, aspiring social entrepreneur, pro #hockey player.

Chamba loves ice. He's the right winger on India's national hockey team but there is nothing right wing about his politics. He is always ready to recite the preamble to India's highly democratic constitution and, in the next moment, offer an intelligent critique of his country's governance, its environmental policies and their implications for his region's glaciers.

I got to know Chamba on a three-day hike to and from Matho Glacier where we made a video about the effects of #climatechange on Ladakh. Chamba's insights and humor made the challenging climb to over 18,000 ft such a good time.

Chamba sees the change. And he wants to do business in a way that respects his country's environment—especially its ice.

His government should too.

Last week I brought the Himalayas to a local public school. During the course of 3 very full days, over a thousand students explored a case study looking at how #ClimateChange is affecting the region's access to water AND how people there are creatively applying STEAM to develop solutions.

Himalayan Elders See Climate Change Everywhere They Look

Want to know how #climatechange is transforming our world? Interview your grandparents!

A group of students in the Indian Himalayas are recording their grandparents' observations of how their environment has changed over the last 70 to 90 years. Their memories help track the speed of glacial recession and temperature rise in the absence of consistent data from before the 1980s.

Me, at 18,790 feet.

I've been returning to these #glaciers year after year. I've been listening to the elders who have watched them recede over the course of their lives. The glaciers are disappearing. Period. And we MUST do something about it. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

Just led my "Everyday Justice" workshop at Stanton College Prep sponsored by the Muslim Student Association & Black History Club. We ran 90 mins over with questions, reflections, and a bit of debate.

A couple of young men came to the workshop to challenge much of what I said with the usual arguments that white privilege is a myth and racial inequality isn't empirically proven (I know...what?). They provided a great opportunity for me to model listening and dialogue on these difficult topics. Luckily, the rest of the group stayed with the conversation and, in the end, everyone expressed gratitude for being able to move through and learn from what could have been a meltdown.

My take away: Young adults need training in how to **productively** engage people they disagree with or who try to invalidate their experiences. It's up to us adults to model that kind of communication. Because let's face it—if we don't, who will?

Think Big for the Future

That gaze!

The futures of young people around the world—especially those from #indigenous communities like the seafaring Bajau of Indonesia—are closely linked to the environment. Slow action on #ClimateChange has meant vital natural resources are disappearing. With them, whole communities and cultures could be lost in the coming generation. The Global Workshop inspires students to think big, across borders and beyond short term gains, to see that our responsibility is not just to the people we count as friends and family. It is to every human being and the natural world.
