HERE for Climate Webinar Series on Energy, Equity, Health, and Solutions in Relation to Climate Change
In early 2021, the American Humanist Association’s Humanist Environmental Response Effort (HERE) for Climate initiative is offering a four-part online series to continue the conversation started in the May 2019 open lecture series Climate Justice: A Better Future for Us All. The new series will highlight the challenges climate change brings to communities in relation to energy, food, and health and how we create equitable and effective solutions moving forward. Join us in learning through these engaging presentations and conversations.
