W.A.P.–What About the Planet

September 30, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

W.A.P.–What About the Planet: Healthy environments and a healthy planet are vital for living healthy lives, yet the topic of the environment, lead poisoning and climate are often left out of conversations of improving conditions in communities. Youth led movements have always been instrumental in making change across the world- the environmental field is no different. These 4 young leaders discuss their inspiration for working in the environmental field, the pressing issues that we should pay attention to related to the environment and why the planet matters, especially as we confront multiple crises and how addressing the climate and lead poisoning crises relate to everyday issues. Additionally, the panel will speak to the intersectionality of addressing environmental justice in the context of other interesting issues and identities.
