The UW College of the Environment, Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion would like to invite you to join the celebrations towards Earth Day, by recognizing and honoring the voice of communities of color through the 2019 Environmental Justice Conference: In-Reach before Outreach:
WHEN: April 19, 2019; 1:00-5:00pm
WHERE: Maple Hall Great Room, University of Washington
DESCRIPTION: Global climate change is changing at a faster rate due, mainly to human activities, with observable effects on socio-ecological systems. The impact of these changes is expected to be catastrophic and now, more than ever, collaborative strategies are needed to mitigate and adapt to new environmental conditions.
The 2019 Environmental Justice Conference organized by the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in the UW College of the Environment will focus on issues of equity and inclusive collaboration to confront climate disruption. The main goal of this conference is to reflect on our outreach strategies and look into community-based solutions. Participants will be able to engage with scholars from different disciplines as well as with local community leaders in a half-a-day program, including a panel-workshop in community engagement through participatory action research and a panel with experts in environmental coalition building.
Registration for the conference is open to all. If you plan on attending the conference, please RSVP Nicole David at email@example.com or 206.221.6634.
