Climate art: let’s get it right – An exhibit of words on paper by UVA’s @writeclimate

Since February, @writeclimate engaged over 1200 members of the UVA community in a conversation on climate change. On pieces of paper, they all wrote a piece of our shared climate story— the history of climate science and policy, why we care about climate change, and what we are doing about it.
