Activating the Power of Storytelling and Student Leadership
for Intersectional Climate Justice

Higher education institutions play a crucial role in preparing future leaders to adapt to, and help solve, the climate crisis. Rising college/university-aged students demonstrate intense interest in social justice issues, civic engagement, and climate change. This interest factors into school choice and can translate into campus sustainability movements, such as fossil fuel divestment campaigns.

Activating this powerful student energy allows universities, as cultivators of future climate leaders, to have an impact both locally and globally.

Join us as we bring together young leaders, organizers, and educators from the climate movement and hold space for real, vulnerable, courageous conversation and storytelling.

Note: Not able to join us for one of the webinars? Not to worry; each one will be recorded, and the links to the recordings will be made available on this page within days following each webinar.
