Executive Director of the Better Future Project
After realizing the connection between social and economic justice and the world's climate, Craig decided to focus on climate and energy issues in 2006 for two-to-three years. During his graduate student years at Harvard, he helped organize the first Power Shift conference in 2007, bringing 5,000 young people to Washington, D.C. for the nation's first national youth climate conference, and then was the lead organizer on a 500-person Massachusetts Power Shift conference the following spring. In the fall of 2007, he co-founded Students for a Just and Stable Future, a student network which Craig led or co-led from the fall of 2008 through the spring of 2010. Craig was awarded a Kaufman Fellowship to kickstart his public service career and help launch Better Future Project.
