A couple of weeks ago, El Faro, an incredible media organization in El Salvador that I’ve long admired, contacted me and asked me to write a piece about the state of climate change mitigation efforts in Costa Rica. I am pleased to share it here because I think it will truly give you a boost to read about these incredible leaders, all 40 or under, who are shaping the future of transportation and urban development in Costa Rica.
As they observe in the piece, the COVID-19 crisis has created new challenges for environmentalists and sustainable living advocates, but it has also opened doors. I hope you’ll check it out here!
I’m a writer in San José, Costa Rica, on a year-long quest to share daily posts on inspiring people, places and ideas from my adopted home as a kind of tonic during a rough time in the world.
