Envisioning Pathways for Equitable Sustainability Workshops

Responding to the global threats of ecological degradation and climate change, sustainability is poised to transform social and ecological interconnections. Its solutions have the potential to change systemic feedbacks to empower and benefit all communities. However, there are many definitions for sustainability that lead to diverse goals and impacts across sectors. In some cases, sustainability is replicating disparities as it advances strategies that center the longevity of natural resources and resilience of current systems while ignoring disadvantaged communities. Community and diverse perspectives are needed in order to implement sustainability and ensure its equitable impacts. Together for Nature is organizing this workshop series for the community and with sustainability leaders and organizers to discuss our shared visions and pathways for how sustainability can uphold equity. There will be opportunities for participants to connect with each other and share solutions for equitable sustainability.

The workshops will take place from 6:00 to 7:30 pm CST via Zoom.
