Sustainability and Social Justice is an annual event exploring the intersection of sustainability and social justice movements across spectra. This year’s theme, "The Power of Youth," seeks to highlight growing movements led by young activists and the people powering them, across economic, racial and environmental justices. The goal of this year’s event is to harness this energy and catalyze a movement at Dartmouth to not just envision the world we want, but to make it a reality.
Climate change and social justice issues impact everyone - from the individual level to the global scale. The next generation of leaders will bear the burden of a rapidly changing planet and the inequalities it produces, therefore it’s up to us to lift up and mobilize students to secure a just and equitable future for all. By centering the work of youth activists, of all backgrounds and identities, we will create a space where the Dartmouth community can come together to learn, connect, and take action - even in difficult times. Particularly during this time of isolation, it’s important that we explore the unique challenges and opportunities of remote organizing, the need and struggle for self-sustainability, and the importance of coalition-building.
We’re excited to hear about our speakers’ particular passions and areas of interest, the different types of activism they engage with, and their journeys in pursuing this work.
