I believe in the importance of intersectionality, allyship, feminism, climate action, and love in creating a truly sustainable world. But climate change is a meta-issue of our generation, and solving its many problems can only be done while acknowledging the disparities that exist between social hierarchies and categorizations.

Viewing these through a lens of compassion, understanding, and respect is integral to bridging these gaps in order to innovate and collaborate. Learn more about youth-led, anti-oppression movements in this session. Bring an open mind and heart, unlearn, and learn with me.
