This artistic storymap features a painting and statement by Claire Sianna Seaman developed in collaboration with the Climate Impacts Group at the University of Washington. It conveys livable, equitable, sustainable communities and healthy ecosystems that are resilient in the face of our changing climate.
"This artwork is an attempt to go beyond the feelings of helplessness: to imagine a future in which we've acted to limit climate change and adapt to the changes we cannot avoid, leaving our region more equitable, sustainable and just."
