On our way to the Delta Cities in Times of Climate Change Conference, myself, along with fellow City and Regional Planning student Kat Joseph and recent Sustainable Environmental Systems alum Kristin Bell, made our way to North Amsterdam to participate in the People’s Climate March. The protest called for a circular economy dependent on renewable energy as well as a shift away from the current greed and growth based economy. People marched, bicycled, and sailed from all parts of the Netherlands to converge at the iconic EYE film museum. The celebrations included art installations, music performance, and words from well known speakers such as Freek de Jonge and Jan Rotmans.
