We all have to make sure the sustainability movement is not a white, elitist movement. Join two Sustainability Directors as they share their successes, challenges, and lessons learned through integrating diversity into campus sustainability programs. Hear about efforts at Bemidji State University (MN) to integrate Ojibwe language and culture and to educate the campus and community about race relations, white privilege, and the history of the land. Learn about sustainability initiatives at Central College (IA) aimed at including athletes, campus religious groups, and students from rural backgrounds. Presenters will share how their own identities impact this work and how they collaborate with diverse campus and community partners. This webinar will be practical in focus, offering specific examples of strategies that have worked at two very different schools. Participants will be invited to reflect on their own cultural and institutional context and to envision strategies for including more diverse voices in shaping sustainability in their communities.
