Disability and Climate Resilience

Workshop | April 9 | 6-8 p.m. | 88 Dwinelle Hall

 Student Environmental Resource Center

Come join SERC for an important workshop on the intersectionality of disability and climate resilience, something that often gets left out of the conversation when talking about climate change.

Leading this workshop is Alex Ghenis and Marsha Saxton from the World Institute of Disability. Alex is a Policy and Research Specialist at WID. He is currently managing the New Earth Disability (NED) project, which addresses how climate change will affect people with disabilities and how people can prepare. Marsha is a Lecturer of Disability Studies at Cal and a Researcher Director at WID. She is a researcher and educator through the NED project.

During this workshop we will be exploring the connection between climate change and disability: What does it mean for this community, the environment and resilience? We will also discover actions for change: what can we do as individuals with and without disabilities? What opportunities are there for activists and allies?
