Encouraged by the positive response to our Climate Justice = Social Justice events last semester, sustainability officers across the CSU are once again collaborating to organize a systemwide virtual event in honor of Earth Day 2021!
We are still working out the details and line-up but our intention is to feature a panel of speakers representing diverse perspectives on sustainability, climate justice, and youth-led solutions to the climate crisis.
We also plan to prioritize finding ways for students to engage and interact with the topics and speakers and take meaningful actions before, during and after the event.
More info coming soon.
