Seminar in Race, Climate Change, and Environmental Justice

April 13, 2021
11:40 AM - 12:55 PM
Online Event

Join the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences for this weekly Seminar in Race, Climate Change, and Environmental Justice. 

Speaker: Alvaro S. Sanchez, Environmental Equity Director, Greenlining Institute

Climate change, racial injustice, and inequities are deeply intertwined. Colonialism, slavery, and the genocide of indigenous peoples are directly linked to natural resource exploitation, environmental degradation, and global warming. The seminar aims to focus on placing race, gender, and class at the center of discussions of the environment, climate, and equity. The goal is to create an academic space that enables collaborative dialogue, action, and insight for systemic change towards racial equity and understanding within a climate and environment context.

The seminar is open to the Columbia community (active UNI required).
