All of the Above is a multidisciplinary forum for undergraduate students to collaboratively forge new understandings of environmentalism. Each week, presenters will bring a new topic that challenges dated perceptions of what are considered environmental issues.
Presenters are encouraged to share their lived experiences, organizing efforts, community involvement, or research. Some example topics include:
- The urban (un)affordability crisis
- Criminal justice and carceral reform/abolition
- A Just Transition
- Gender justice
- Interspecies relations
- The intersections of race, class, and health
- Food systems
- Democratically designed cities
We’ll meet once a week via Zoom on Fridays at 3pm (link here). Gatherings are intended to last between 15 to 45 minutes with time for questions and breakout groups at the end.
All of the Above is an opportunity for students to come together and imagine templates for a more just society. Participation requires holding space for others’ ideas and respect for their experiences.
