Hello Revelator readers,

I love this time of year. We finally get a chance to take a breath and reflect on the past 12 months — the highs, the lows, the continuing COVID-ness. Among all that, two bright spots jump out. 

First are all the inspiring people we interviewed. They shared their experiences of fighting for clean water, studying climate change biology, writing their way through extinction grief, and a lot more. Read some of our favorite interviews here.

The second is that despite a lot of bad environmental news these days, we published dozens of stories about what’s working. Below are 12 solution stories that we hope help keep your flame burning in the year ahead.
