2016 Greenfield Peace Writing Scholarship

In 2016, we asked students to respond to the following question:

“How would a successful movement to confront climate change help create a more just and peaceful world?”

We received 100 entries from communities throughout the state. We greatly appreciate all of the students who took the time to share their ideas with us.
