    I wish to thank both presenters, Shrishtee and Guy, for their talks.

    Guy, you have for a long time been out in front of the severity of the climate crisis, and I appreciate your thoughts at the end on what people might consider doing in light of this. This is a conversation that many people, movements, and organizations are now taking up, and this will only become more the case as we go further into the challenges of this decade of decision. I look forward to being part of that conversation!

    Shrishtee, I am always inspired by the work you are doing to highlight the stories of communities on the front lines of this crisis, who are living, creating, and collaborating to find ways to confront it. You are one of the most eloquent and perceptive scholar-activists who are contributing and sharing vital information about the pluriverse of systemic alternatives!
