Garrett is a canvas-painting, word-mashing, collage-snipping climate justice activist hailing from North Liberty, a small country town in northwest Indiana. Galvanized by reading Hot, Flat, and Crowded in 2011, Garrett continues to seek outlets where he can take responsibility for his actions as a human in an interconnected world. At the University of Notre Dame, Garrett co-founded Fossil Free ND which campaigns for carbon neutrality and fossil fuel divestment. Graduating in May 2015, Garrett is currently living on his bike as a part of Climate Journey – a slow, intentional journey from New England to Paris for COP21 aimed at collecting stories of those mobilizing for climate action. Garrett loves laughing, being warm in the sun, and unexpected cards from his mother with notes inside.
