September 16, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Young, Gifted & Green 40 under 40 is an annual list of Black, Latinx (non-white presenting*), and Indigenous environmental justice leaders under the age of 40 from across the U.S. who are grappling with complex solutions to solve the Climate Crisis and dismantle Environmental Racism. Nominees include educators, scientists, artists, policymakers, healthcare/public health professionals, faith-based leaders, mental health professionals, birth workers, farmers, social-justice advocates/activists, storytellers, journalists, entrepreneurs, technologists, chefs, clean-energy gurus, social media influencers — any individual making a major difference in environment justice.
“Non-white presenting” Latinx nominees reflect those individuals who do not benefit from white privilege and have historically been discriminated against due to anti-blackness and wrongful anti-indigenous practices.
