EarthShakes believes that climate change and biodiversity loss present monumental challenges to life on the planet, and understand that the effects of extreme heat, floods, food loss, pollution, and habitat destruction unequally affect those who are least responsible for human-made climate change, a concept known as environmental injustice or environmental racism. We hope to leverage whatever power Shakespeare's plays might contain to highlight these issues and imagine more sustainable and equal futures for all.
