Join students from around the world for interactive dialogue about youth mobilization for a just recovery. 

The world continues to face massive disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic, the amplification of existing injustices and, at the same time, the climate crisis continues. But out of this period of upheaval also arises the opportunity to organize for collective action, transformation and innovative change. Governments, communities and individuals face important choices about how to move forward in ways that build a healthier, more just, more sustainable future. 

Moderator Jenny Blackbird will be joined by youth advocates critically thinking and working at the frontlines of the intersection between climate, decolonizing, racial and economic justice and who are taking up the challenge to find innovative ways to move forward with hope and solidarity.  

Participants will have the opportunity to engage in interactive dialogue/sharing activities in small groups following the panel component of the event.

Please join us for this essential opportunity for inspiration and connection.
