A new Earth conversation is a transformative
climate initiative at Clark University

We have, as a planet, entered a time of profound reckoning.

Given the gravity and uncertainty of our situation,
the work of higher education must change.

A new Earth conversation

is our response to the challenge of these times.

Through a collective process of inquiry, listening and discernment,
engagement and effective action become possible.
