We are pleased to announce the workshops which will be available during the Greening of the Campus Conference IX. Following are brief narratives of each. The more detailed scheduling of these is forthcoming, but in the meantime colleagues might want to read through the options to begin to flag those gatherings of most interest.
Janica Johnson and Brianna Ford, Clark Atlanta University Miranda J. Garcia and Darius A. Stanton, Claflin University This workshop uses popular education methodology to explore the reality of the climate and economic gaps, how they are related to one another, and how they manifest in the lives of people living in communities of color and/or low-income communities. Student leaders, also known as College Ambassadors in Green For All's College Ambassador Program, will facilitate this workshop as an interactive dialogue to look at the role of green-collar jobs in shaping an economy that is both just and sustainable. Participants will leave this workshop with a better understanding of how green solutions to can simultaneously address poverty and climate change in the U.S., and have a great ability to explain these concepts to others. This workshop is highly interactive and will give participants a chance to network with each other while sharing knowledge and experience.
