Climate Health Action Program's Climate Justice Lecture Series - Waste Justice

Wednesday, July 28, 2021

TIME: 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM


The CHAP Climate Justice Lecture Series, is being presented by the University of Minnesota Medical School’s, Climate Health Action Program. This lecture series has been developed to build community, raise awareness within the healthcare community about the intersection between climate change and social determinants of health using the framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

We know that creating true partnerships with the community requires listening, therefore we want to hear about the lived experiences of our community members and learn from their expertise. The seminar series helps highlight the work of community groups leading the way in climate efforts, and showcase actions those in academia can take to bridge the gap.
