of 2022. In an era of wildfire, heat wave, flood and

upheaval, how do we find hope and solutions?

Ostrander answers this question with a series of vivid and uplifting accounts of American communities confronting the impacts of climate change—including wildfire-ravaged parts of Washington state. In this talk, she’ll offer a series of insights about what it takes to create resilience in a time of crisis and protect the places and communities we care about.
