PARTNERS

WHAT ARE YOU DOING APRIL 20–24?

tUrn returns in April - for the 50th Anniversary of EARTH DAY

Consider what you might do between now and then

to make the future less perilous for all those to come.

Report out on changes, small and large,

that we've undertaken

between tUrn weeks.

 

KEEP IT TOGETHER | BRING PEOPLE IN

It is important to work together and not be in isolation while facing the scientific

consensus that we are in a climate crisis.

Expanding our notion of expert, we seek the wisdom of lesser heard voices.

Let's create that supportive community that can do great things.

We got this.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

tUrn acknowledges that at Santa Clara University we work, teach and study on the traditional lands of the Ohlone. In an effort to affirm indigenous sovereignty we intentionally begin our inquiry into climate crisis on what is recognized as Indigenous People's Day in order to honor, affirm, support, listen and learn from Native Peoples.

Our Headliners, Resources, and Advisory Board reflect this intention.

This effort to normalize the discourse around climate crisis and move into solution mode is greatly assisted by
