Are YoU a Climate Zombie? How can we walk together?
Oct 25, 2012, 10am-3pm
Come and take action! Are you aware of climate justice issues? Are your actions hurting disenfranchised people worldwide? Do you want to take action and make a difference here at York and beyond? The purpose of this climate justice unconference is to create a forum for students, staff and faculty to have open conversations around social justice, human rights, sustainability and climate change issues. The end goal is to create opportunities to work together to take action both personally and here at York University.
An unconference uses "open space technology" to hosta conference that allows participants to determine the agenda themselves at the start of the day within the scope of a particular topic. So YoU set the agenda! This unconference is brought to you through the joint efforts of IRIS – Institute for Research & Innovation in Sustainability, the Centre for Human Rights, CSBO – Campus Services & Business Operations, the President’s Sustainability Council, York University – TD Community Engagement Centre, Net Impact, Regenesis @ York, and the Climate Consortium for Research Action Integration. Outline for the day: 9:30am to 10:00am – sign up and welcome; 10:00am to 11:00am – introduction and setting the agenda; 11:00am to 2:00pm – breakout sessions; 2:00pm to 3:00pm – conclusions and wrap-up
