This is a highly interactive training aimed to leverage the creative power of student leaders to address the most pressing social and environmental issues impacting our campus and surrounding community while understanding how those issues overlap. This workshop is designed to create innovative space to explore the confluence of ecological & social justice and bring together students who care about social justice issues with students who care about environmental issues and explore root causes and collaborations. It will provide creative problem solving tools to drive social innovation and build the leadership skills needed to create a equitable and sustainable world.
