[fa icon="calendar'] Jul 8, 2011 10:36:00 AM / by Cynthia Figge

The Women’s Network for a Sustainable Future (WNSF) Seattle Chapter recently hosted an event at the University of Washington Law School featuring the story and work of two women, Jeni Krencicki Barcelos and Jen Marlow. The two came to law school to reframe climate change as a justice issue, not a technical or economic issue, where they discovered their mutual passion for addressing global climate change, and co-created Three Degrees. Three Degrees’ mission is to promote fair and equitable adaptation strategies for the world's most vulnerable communities. Here is an overview of Three Degrees, an inspiring story of the power of identifying real problems in the world, and setting out to solve them.

Grace off the Grid

[fa icon="calendar'] Jul 5, 2011 3:38:23 PM / by Cynthia Figge

I’ve been going to Ross Lake for nearly three decades. A twenty mile long lake nestled in the Cascade Mountains of Washington state, the landscape is changeless. We still hike on the same trail to Desolation Peak, where Jack Kerouac spent 63 days during the summer of 1956 in a U.S. Forest Service fire lookout. The lookout remains in place to this day. We still catch rainbow trout that spawn in the numerous streams that flow into the lake. We still camp on an island where deer must swim to visit.  This year’s contingent included a doe that coaxed her fawns born this spring to take their first swim to the mainland, and a 14 point buck with velvet splendor who spent a half day on “our” island.  This place reminds me that there is grace off the grid, for a while. No internet, cell phone or radio. Just the sound of loons, waterfalls, wind, and the beauty of this land.
