This interdisciplinary, interactive multimedia symposium brings together scholars and professionals from Syracuse and South Africa to investigate the intersections of race and the environment, and impacts of climate change on marginalized and racialized populations.

Using a non-traditional, pioneering, sustainable and accessible modality, conference participants engage across distance in dialogue and through large-scale public multimedia installations (online and on site), created by the interdisciplinary cohort of topic experts. 

This live online conversation invites Q&A from the community, with the premise that creative responses to global injustices and threats emerge when people with different worldviews come together to seek sustainable solutions.
