It’s Not Just an Environmental Thing: RPCVs Tackling Climate Change Across Sectors
Our last panel discussion of 2021 Peace Corps Thought Leader Series brings together an exceptional group of RPCVs who are leading efforts across multiple sectors to address climate change. They will share their expertise on climate change within their sector, their thoughts on how their PCV experience contributed to how they approach their work and thoughts on how the Volunteers and RPCVs can help address current and future challenges related to climate change. The moderator for this event will be Maria Elena Vivas-House, Peace Corps’ Director of Recruitment.

Panelists include:
- Dr. Patrick Gonzalez, Assistant Director for Climate and Biodiversity, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (RPCV/Senegal)
- Jacqueline Patterson, Founder and Executive Director, The Chisholm Legacy Project: A Resource Hub for Black Frontline Climate Justice Leadership (RPCV/Jamaica)
- Dr. Jonathan Drewry, Regional Advisor, Climate Change and Health, Pan American Health Organization (RPCV/Bolivia)

If you are an RPCV and your work intersects in any way with climate change - either in the U.S. or around the world - please send an email to thirdgoal@peacecorps.gov to tell us more about what you are doing. We would love to hear from you!

The Peace Corps Thought Leader Series brings together Returned Peace Corp Volunteers (RPCVs) who have become thought leaders and influencers in various fields throughout the United States and across the world. We explore with them how their Peace Corps service informed and influenced their career choices and how the knowledge, skills, and abilities they gained through service have helped them make a positive impact in their fields and in their home communities.
