A student led ALL-NIGHT Earth Day event

Generations of Environmental Justice is an all-night Earth Day “teach-out” hosting a variety of presentations and workshops from individuals and organizations at the heart of the current environmental justice movement. All are invited to join, participate, and lend their own lived experience and perspective to this effort. 

Action is a core focus of the night. Inspired by Project Survival, a precursor event to the original Earth Day organized by Northwestern students in January 1970, Generations of Environmental Justice will serve as a catalyst for action on dire matters of the climate crisis, with a specific focus on community-based projects that we collectively identify as moving us towards our visions of a transformed world.
