Collaborative Social Change: Building Social and Environmental Justice in Your Community
This course is centered around two core principles (social justice and sustainability) and one guiding philosophy (that the issues we face and our efforts to address them are all deeply interconnected).
In the first half of the course, we will seek connections between issues of justice--including climate, environmental, racial, gender, queer, indigenous, socio-economic justice, and more--and will look for connections in the movements that seek to address these issues. Each of us has a unique justice lens, and all are encouraged to bring their own perspectives and passions to the discussion.
The second half of the course explores practices for leading change from an individual to a societal level, and each class seeks to add new tools for collaborating, leading, and organizing others in change efforts.
