CSCS Climate Ride premieres documentary

The Center for Sustainable Climate Solutions (CSCS) premiered the CSCS Climate Ride documentary on Sunday, Jan. 30, at 8 p.m. EST during a virtual event.

Created by Climate Rider Loren Friesen, the 1.5 hour film documents the experiences of the 16 riders, including three Goshen College students, throughout their 3,737-mile journey from Seattle to Washington D.C. last summer.

Riders from Goshen College include Denver Beck, a senior sustainability studies major from Archbold, Ohio; Greta Lapp Klassen, a junior English and secondary education major from Goshen; and Sierra Richer, a senior journalism major from Goshen.

Along the way, the riders stopped in communities to hear and share stories of what climate change means to a range of people across the nation.

Following the premiere will be a talkback session with a panel of climate riders.

In addition to Goshen College, the riders include current or recent students of Eastern Mennonite University, Fresno Pacific University and Canadian Mennonite University, in addition to leader Joanna Friesen, volunteers Dan and MaryAnn Conrad driving the support vehicle and coordinator and leader David Landis.
