REDLANDS, Calif. — The University of Redlands will host a climate change and environmental justice teach-in on Thursday, March 21 as part of their Climate Action Week. 

Why it matters: The teach-in is part of a larger initiative to spark dialogue on climate and environmental justice on campuses and in communities worldwide. By hosting events open to all, organizers hope to foster cooperation between people from all walks of life, emphasizing that everyone should have a role in helping tackle this pressing issue. 

Details: The event will be held on March 21, 2024, from 4:00 to 7:15 p.m. at the Orton Center located at 1250 E. Brockton Ave. 

The event will be broken up into three sections with the first hour consisting of a poster display. Students, faculty, staff and community members will exhibit posters explaining their climate change-related research, creative work, campus projects and more. This event is an open time for all to come learn and ask questions. Registration is recommended, but not required. 

At 5 p.m. there will be a talk titled “Climate Change and Just Solutions” to discuss the science of climate change, the inequitable distribution of impacts and potential solutions from policy, business and social-wellbeing perspectives. The list of speakers has yet to be released, however members of the Inland Empire environmental community and University of Redlands faculty are expected to make up the panel. Registration is recommended for this event. 

The final portion of the teach-in is a social hour featuring low-carbon food and non-alcoholic beverages. Attendees will be given the time to mingle and discuss the information presented. Registration is required as space is limited, however as this portion is supported by donors, it may be expanded with additional funding. 

Moving forward: Throughout the week of March 18, the university will host a number of events in honor of their Climate Action Week. If interested in supporting this event or others on campus, consider making a donation.
