Stabilizing the climate is not the work of a year, of a presidential term, or of a decade. It is the work of a generation. C2C Fellows is designed to engage students and recent graduates who have leadership ambition, and provide them knowledge, skills, courage, and a powerful, ongoing network, to help lead a global revolution.
The C2C Fellows program is headed by Dr. Eban Goodstein, an economist, scholar and Director of the Bard Center for Environmental Policy, and Dean of the Bard MBA in Sustainability. From 2008-2010, Goodstein organized a series of national, one-day educational events on global warming solutions. The teach-in’s and dialogs were among the biggest in US history, together involving over 2500 colleges, universities, high schools and faith communities, and close to a million students.
Goodstein’s work is inspired by the work of the Highlander Center in Tennessee, originally located close to his hometown, and where his parents helped fight for civil rights. For eighty years, Highlander has been a training center for citizen educators and activists. During the 1950s, virtually every major civil rights activist, from Rosa Parks to Dr. King, attended Highlander workshops. They left with knowledge, skills, and above all, a reinforced sense of courage that changed the world.
