Introducing Northeastern’s Climate Justice and Sustainability Hub

Earlier this year, Northeastern unveiled plans to establish a Climate Justice and Sustainability Hub. This raises some important questions. How can the Hub support and connect the climate justice movements on and off campus? What is Northeastern’s role in these movements? How could the University address gentrifying neighborhoods and Boston’s housing crisis?

Join faculty, students, and local community leaders to explore questions about how the Climate Justice and Sustainability Hub can best support the climate justice movement on and off campus.  This hybrid in-person and virtual event is an open invitation to shape and be a part of the Hub’s work ahead. The event is open to the public and free of charge, but registration is required.

Panelists:
Dr. Atyia Martin, All Aces Inc. (Moderator)
Karl Reid, Senior Vice Provost and Chief Inclusion Officer, Northeastern University
Joan Fitzgerald, Professor of Public Policy and Urban Affairs, Northeastern University
Melanie Gárate, Climate Resiliency Manager, Mystic River Watershed Association
Adele Andrews, Hub Coordinator of Sunrise Northeastern

Refreshments from Fresh Food Generation in Dorchester and a reception to follow

The event is finished.
