Climate Justice Hub: For People & Planet
What key words best describe your hope for the future?
social justice, climate justice, activism, organizing, consulting,
Describe what are you working on in the field of climate change, environmental protection, environmental justice or social impact.
My organization and I are bridging the gap between the climate justice movement in our local UCSB/Santa Barbara communities and the undergraduate student body found on UCSB. We educate students on the many facets of the movement and its intersection with social justice, participate in local campaigns that work towards climate justice, and serve as a networking platform between social justice groups and environmental groups as a literal "hub".
How might other W&E conference attendees be able to support your work, goals or objectives?
I hope to connect with fellow attendees who work in the realm of climate justice and hope to bring them onto campus at UCSB for educational events or internship/workshop opportunities. I will soon become a graduate of UCSB with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Environmental Studies with an informal emphasis on indigenous environmental movements (particularly in violence against fellow environmentalists in countries that constitute the global South) and wish to network with possible future employers.
What are you able and willing to contribute to other attendees at the conference to support their work, goals or objectives?
Anyone is more than welcome to participate in the org and the events that we have planned for the rest of this school year. We can also serve as a connection between social justice and environmental organizations on campus. I have a multitude of connections among the undergraduate Environmental Studies faculty that may be of use to attendees looking to connect with the university's renowned department. I work at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History and have made many connections over my seven years of employment that is also welcome to any attendee who would like to connect with the Museum.
