People across the globe are experiencing the impacts of development in their communities and on their local environments. What do people affected by these changes have to say? This civic gathering will provide a forum for people to relay their experiences and place them in the context of how we can learn to work together more effectively and powerfully to build the just and sustainable world we all want to live in.
By recognizing new possibilities for mutual collaboration, we can move ahead toward common goals and objectives. This means actively meeting and strategizing together, learning from one another's experiences, collaborating on vital projects, and looking at the bigger context and areas of intersection between social justice and environmental protection. Come join Julia Butterfly Hill, Van Jones, selected international mayors, and Bayview Hunters Point residents for a lively panel discussion, followed by small group interactions with the presenters.
