with Donna Shahbazi
Are most adults working at colleges and universities talking about or addressing the climate or ecological crises? Students, young adults, and youth all over the world are desperately trying to inspire action in those who have the power, resources, knowledge, and position to be a part of climate solutions.
This session provides an analysis of student-led climate justice movements across colleges and universities in the United States – their triumphs, successes, and failures. What can movements learn from other movements to be more effective in breaking the inertia of academia in a climate emergency? Creighton Alumna and Seattle University Law student and tUrn partner Donna Shahbazi provides a blueprint for student groups to learn how others are reaching their targets and implementing successful campaigns to ensure that educational institutions face reality and use their leverage in the emergency situation of ecological, climate, social and political destabilization that is upon us.
