Ithaca College, in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County, Sustainable Tompkins, and Building Bridges, is pleased to invite campus sustainability professionals and their community partners to a virtual discussion series exploring the campus-community relationship. Part one of the five-part series, titled What is “Sustainability” in the Time of Anti-Racist Uprising and a Global Pandemic, will take place September 16th at 3 PM over Zoom. The registration link is now open:
In the face of a global pandemic and protests following recent incidents of police brutality and racial inequity, sustainability professionals are called to re-examine our approach to climate work. In this virtual participant discussion, explore the interconnections between the three current crises: coronavirus, racial inequity, and the climate emergency, as well as how we need to adjust our definition of sustainability and how we practice it. We’ll begin to identify ways campuses and communities can and need to work together to form solutions that tackle all three crises simultaneously and equitably. While entirely virtual, this discussion will be heavily participatory, with all participants asked to engage in break-out rooms and group dialogue. Campus and municipal sustainability staff are encouraged to attend and consider inviting local community partners.
What is “Sustainability” is part of the Campus to Community: Leveraging Power to Create Community-Wide Change series, which addresses campus and community relationships and interdependence. Please feel free to distribute this invitation to friends and colleagues and contact Rebecca Evans with any questions.
