The C-Change team often receives enthusiastic and warm accolades for our Primer presentations, blogs, and newsletters. We appreciate it! But imagine our excitment when Princeton Magazine approached us to do a story about our work. We were thrilled that our mission, team, and success were prominently featured in the February 2022 issue of a leading publication in the city where C-Change was born.
The article begins with “They appear to be an unlikely group to advocate for and educate on climate change,” goes on to say “They have become known as trusted messengers,” and concludes by acknowledging that “building bridges” is a central component of our work.

C-Change Founder and President Kathleen Biggins holds a block of carbon. Annual U.S. carbon emissions per person equal burning roughly two of these blocks per hour.
Excerpt from Princeton Magazine
Kathleen “believes people are becoming aware, and that C-Change is a ‘bridge builder’ – bringing people together at a time when so many forces are pushing us apart.”
”’It takes a village – I am the originator of the idea, but it took an incredible team,” Biggins says. ‘There is an adage: passionate people can make change, even if you are not in a position of power.”’
”’There is greater interest among people on how climate change impacts them. I’m excited to see some of the shifts. It’s something I’m proud of. We’re building bridges when others are tearing them down.”’
