With the New Year right around the corner comes the time to give yourself the resolve to enact change. Even on a small scale. In the past year the Fairview Institute has had members who have created change around them, they have lobbied to Joe Neguse’s aid, worked to implement more vegan options on the BVSD Menu, marched for women’s rights, connected with the community spreading awareness on climate change, and have lined up more ideas for what to do next than ever before. However, taking today into consideration it is clearly not enough. Looking outside Coloradoans can see the grey smoky sky, illuminated in the orange light, they can see fires caused by a drought in late December, spreading due to the extreme winds howling at our doors. With this in consideration we need to take a moment to make ourselves a resolution. The Fairview Institute is resolving to make more change and move more people toward change than ever before, and we invite you to join us and we hope you will, because Climate Change is a problem that does not care for party lines or ties, geographical borders, or societal standing, so on the behalf of the Fairview Institute, I ask each and every one of you to take a moment to think about what you can do to make change and progress in your world, then do it. While it is true we need to be the change we wish to see in the world, it is now time to be the change we NEED to see in the world.
