Hello everyone! My name is Adam, and I am a third year biology major and creative writing minor at UBC. I am strongly of the belief that climate activism requires a paradigm shift toward actual, measurable action, and I am very excited to be in a class which so strongly supports this. Climate change is the greatest challenge our species faces, and continued posturing about the idea of change without actual transformative change occurring is not nearly enough. I am very excited to see the response which the 'bat-signals' generate, as that is a method of promoting important ideas which I had never considered before. I look forward to to what the rest of the term holds as we learn to #UnleashValues.
