At the Hinterlands of Paris
COP 26 People's Summit
What is This Water?
On November 4, 2020, the day after the presidential election, the United States became the first and only nation to officially withdraw from the Paris Agreement.
The withdrawal was, as is typical of the climate crisis, momentous and indeterminate, catastrophic and banal.

Together, we marked our unheralded arrival in The Hinterlands of Paris.
We emerged resourced by poetry, community, and laughter. Two of the tangible artifacts created in that space include A List of Essentials for our journey into The Hinterland
and a Time Space Map.
