Dear all,

In February some colleagues and I decided to form a ‘Historians for Future’ group. Our aim was to provide a historical perspective on the climate and biodiversity crisis. We set up a website and Twitter account but when corona hit, it became difficult to keep the momentum going.

Now we would like to revive the group, and I am reaching out to ask if any of you would be interested in joining us. We are currently writing a statement on the role of history (and historians) in mitigating climate change, compiling a list of resources on environmental history and planning a blog/podcast series. We are a very small team and would be delighted if some of you decided to join us. You can reach us at contact@historiansforfuture.com.

Kind regards,
Lea Beiermann
