Second Nature and the Intentional Endowments Network welcome you to this platform for learning, planning, acting, and leading together on climate and justice on our campuses, in our communities, and across our society and economy.

11:00am EST

Peer-to-Peer Conversations - All We Can Save
There will not be a recording of this session.

Inspired by our keynote speaker Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson’s work, this informal conversation will introduce the anthology All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis. We’ll talk about ways to bring the book to life on your campus or in your organization, and reflect together on its themes! No need to do any reading in advance, but if you’d like to learn more about the anthology, take a look here.

Some key takeaways from this session:
  • A number of campuses are using or planning ways to connect across the full campus community on sustainability and climate justice, and to help people find their unique contributions to sustainability/climate justice no matter which field they work in/study.
  • All We Can Save circles are starting on a few campuses, and others will explore ways to use them this year.
