Laura Sacks 

Laura Sacks lives in rural British Columbia, Canada, and has a background rooted in the sciences with a career as a hydrologist. Responsibility for her daughters’ future and a deep love of the natural world inspired her to shift her focus to climate advocacy. She founded and co-leads the Nelson – West Kootenay chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby (CCL) and co-leads CCL’s Peer Support action team with Jeff Joslin. Self care has been critical in sustaining her work over the long run.
