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.
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
