The College of the Environment's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion team at University of Washington (UW) will celebrate its Third Environmental Justice Conference on April 7, 2020 in Alder Hall. This conference emerges from an ongoing conversation across UW departments and community leaders regarding how to foster equitable collaborations with local and global communities. The main objective of this conference is to reflect on best practices around community-based approaches in order to fully understand the positionality of researchers in environmental/climate justice initiatives.
We invite interested participants to join and extend this conversation to explore methodologies, challenges, and opportunities through the design of workshops that may include interactive presentations, discussions, and exercises. Suggested key themes include community engagement, participatory/community-based action research methodologies, and equitable partnerships. This call is OPEN to all who might be interested, regardless of their affiliation with UW.
Proposals should be submitted in PDF format by email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 28, 2020.
