Tackling "the Challenge of
Our Century"

Forging a career to save our environment and to promote climate justice is to lead a life of purpose. Middlebury professor Jonathan Isham delivered that message during a Circle Talk on Tuesday, April 24, urging students to aggressively tackle climate change to protect all people—especially the world's most vulnerable populations—from its harm.
