Catherine Adams

University of Exeter Summer Institute on Global Sustainability

Catherine Adams grew up in both Denver, Colorado and Westerville, Ohio. Catherine is currently a rising junior at the Ohio State University, where she is majoring in Social and Environmental Geography and minoring in GIS and Creative Writing. In her free time, she loves to draw and write poetry. Catherine is passionate about environmental justice, climatology, political economy, and social movements. Catherine has worked as a climate justice organizer on the national, state, and local level for the past four years. As an organizer, she is particularly interested in the ways in which art and writing can be used to build mass movements for climate justice.

Catherine is excited to explore the science behind climate solutions at the University of Exeter and apply her new knowledge to advocacy work back at home. While in England, she is looking forward to building community with people from around the world in order to address the climate crisis. At the Summer Institute, she is also looking forward to exploring the rich history of industrial development in the United Kingdom.
