Join the Yale DiversAbility Alumni Group and Yale Blue Green for a livestream forum with our panel of experts and scholars to discuss the intersectionality of disability and climate change. Questions we will address and explore include:
- What is the current state of environmental policy?
- Why are resilient, inclusive policies important?
- Who is impacted by inaccessible and exclusionary planning and infrastructure?
- How do these policies impact everyone?
- What actions can be taken to help make positive policy changes?
From this program viewers will gain a better understanding and appreciation for the steps that can be taken to develop a more accessible and sustainable world, one that is better prepared for climate change and its destructive forces.
