Bringing Back Climate Conference Lessons
Westmont junior Analee Josselyn '25, a history and economics and business double major, and Conrad Morgan '23, who graduated with a bachelor’s degree in environmental studies, are attending the U.N. Climate Conference (COP28) in Dubai.
Josselyn and Morgan are there with Christian Climate Observers, a non-denominational Christian presence advocating for God’s creation while training the next generation of U.N. climate observers from a Christian and missional perspective.
“One of my hopes for the experience is that the impact would not stop at me, but reverberate back to Westmont College and help to cultivate more conversation around faith and climate action, which I see as inextricably linked,” Josselyn says.
Morgan and Josselyn, who is earning a minor in environmental studies, were both involved with last summer’s Faith. Climate. Action: A Workshop on Christian Climate Advocacy, which welcomed about 40 students from Christian college campuses to Westmont. Josselyn will be part of this summer’s conference June 16-21 at Westmont.
She plans on sharing her experience in Dubai to the Horizon, Westmont’s student newspaper, and on social media for the Students for Sustainability Club at Westmont.
