What gives you hope?
I have great faith in the human capacity for resilience, which is built on a combination of human ingenuity and basic human decency. Though our children may inhabit a diminished world, they will also inherit opportunities to make the world a better, healthier, and more just place for all species to flourish. My hope is that we will continue to build an intellectual, social, and emotional foundation for them to do so effectively. That’s what education is all about.
