This is a FREE EVENT with FREE food but we would appreciate it if you could press going and register via the link (only 40 spots!)What is intersectional action?
Intersectionality is about how multiple issues intersect and affect each other. Intersectional action is about how action taken must be holistic and address these interactions in order to adequately solve an issue. For instance, often communities of colour or lower socio-economic communities, who contribute the least to climate change, are the most affected by it.
This intersection also occurs with the sustainable development goals. Gender equality, poverty, health, education, climate action, sustainable cities, and the other SDG’s must be addressed together and with respect to one another. Environmental and social issues are intimately interlinked. Solutions and innovations can only be effective when these intersectionalities are acknowledged.
After the workshop, participants will be given the opportunity to ask questions and network with the panelists.
Join us at 5pm on Thursday, August 5th in the Venture Space!
