Anne’s Climate Story


Anne Y.


M5V Toronto, Canada

How are you sensing climate change?

See my audio recording for a reflective poem on my relationship with snow and the winter.
Something I grew up around, though not all winter, always some, snow has a special place in my heart.
It’s not everywhere, and where it is changes, but its place in me will always exist and I hope that I will have places I can go to with it for years to come.

How do these changes make you feel?

I feel sad, nostalgic, reflective, resigned, distanced, powerless, and disheartened. Climate variance is something so special, and its loss is devastating to not only the earth and its systems, but humans as well, creating a deeper positive feedback loop.
