Social Sustainability Month
The goal of the Social Sustainability Month committee is to build sustainable community that includes everyone. Some of these connections include the ecological, environmental justice, economic, political, human rights, and cultural dimensions of sustainability.
This year we want to continue our exploration of ways to dismantle positions of power and privilege within the sustainability movement. What are some practical ways to do this? How do we honor indigenous and traditional connections to place?
What role has colonization played in silencing these voices? How has colonization impacted people’s quality of life and the land inhabited by them? In what ways is language used as a tool for colonization?
