Earth Day 2021
Nature at Work: Inspiring Just Responses for an Unruly World  

8:30 a.m. on Thursday, April 22 – Noon on Friday, April 23
FREE VIRTUAL EVENT
While nature has always been an uncontrollable force of both beauty and devastation, human impact on the ecosystem has made nature increasingly unpredictable. An unruly climate marked by extreme weather events is leading to challenges such as biodiversity decline and water scarcity while also placing a significant, and unjust burden on the most vulnerable populations.

During this year’s Earth Day learning event we will discuss environmental justice and the ways in which our climate challenges are impacting health, education, the economy, and the overall wellbeing of people around the world. We will explore nature’s incredible power and how increased efforts to respect it will lead to social justice and mitigate some of our greatest climate related challenges.
