Come August 1st, 2018, Shahir and Athina will take to the road in a low emissions vehicle. Their journey will begin in California, taking them east through the great plains, up to New England, down to Florida, and back over a period of 11 weeks. Along the way they will visit different communities to speak with city councils, community groups, and college campuses on the important issue of climate change and solutions. They will also engage in door-to-door activity and administer a climate survey aimed to assess climate sentiment around the country and how it differs by region. They look forward to publishing their data to help develop effective strategies of climate communication. A pinnacle of their voyage will be a visit to Capitol Hill where they welcome fellow citizens to join them in meeting with members of Congress- A “Day of Congressional Climate Action!” ?
