World leaders convened in Paris in December 2015 for the historic U.N. climate talks. Prior to the talks, Letters to the Future was conceived to ask authors, artists, scientists and others to write to future generations of their own families predicting the success or failure of the talks. This project was made possible through the generosity of the contributors. It is one of several national projects News & Review has coordinated, and it provides an example of the impact that IJF hopes to achieve.
This project published online and in 40 alternative weeklies across the country, garnering four million print readers and 11 million unique visitors online.
