Forest fires and smoky air. Record temperatures. Erratic weather. But also restoration. Reimagining and collaboration. New possibilities. That’s how Brighter Green has experienced the first part of 2023. We like to focus on solutions, while acknowledging the scale of the challenges. Please read our June 2023 newsletter for highlights from some of the projects and policy directions we’re researching, developing narratives for, and collaborating around. As the summer and winter solstices arrive, thank you for your interest and support. We wish you well in these months of both very long and very short days.Learn More
