Independent Study Experience

junior Julia Peet shares her hands on exploration of climate change

This semester I did an independent study which focused on youth leaders fighting climate change. I was able to travel to Egypt for the United Nations Climate Conference this fall where I conducted interviews, attended sessions led by various leaders and organizations, and met many interesting and accomplished individuals. Some of my highlights were attending a very small meeting with John Kerry, and getting to hear from leaders who were my age or even younger. For my final project, I have created two podcasts, one which focuses on what I learned the semester, and one that specifically focuses on the conference itself. Please let me know if you find time to listen to them and I hope you enjoy them!
