Keynote: The Truth About the Roots of the Climate Crisis and the Path Forward

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This keynote panel conversation led by Gopal Dayaneni will bring key climate justice leaders together to reflect on how higher education has responded to the climate crisis and why these responses and the crafting of solutions need to be in partnership with grassroots and frontline communities. They illustrate that the problem and the solution lie beyond our focus on carbon emissions and are intertwined with our legacies of colonialism and environmental racism. It’s not just about doing something about climate change but how and what we do that matters. The panel will offer a people and justice centered framework to help us articulate the solutions we need to address climate change.
