FIGHTING FOR THE FUTURE: YOUTH ORGANIZING FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE - SESSION 3:  In It for the Long Haul: Climate Grief and Sustainable Organizing
February 24, 2022 from 7:00 - 8:00 PM ET (4:00-5:00 PM PT)

Facing dire warnings from climate scientists and “blah blah blah” from global governments who don’t take youth seriously, young people today face a future filled with uncertainty. And yet, youth are leading movements that are transforming the world. Youth organizers will share their own perspectives on climate grief, structural challenges (racism, sexism, ageism), and imposter syndrome – as well as the hope, connection and purpose they’ve gained from being part of organizing communities. Need more context on how to reckon with climate grief while trying to change the world? Want to know what it takes to organize sustainably for the long haul? Join us for a panel and Q&A.
