Our Village 2020

Whether you live in a tropical forest or a North American city, we all belong to the same planet, the same future. We belong to the same global village. This is the sentiment behind “OUR VILLAGE virtual”. In the global village to which we all belong, climate change and environmental injustice are inextricably  linked to the struggles of communities and peoples underrepresented in the political process and oppressed by systemic racism, poverty, and inequality. 

All around the world local communities are responding to climate change with powerful resilience, innovative action, and a spirit that can profoundly impact our world. OUR VILLAGE invites people from all walks of life to belong to a community inspired by justice and our connection to the earth. 

OUR VILLAGE is a conversation, a convening, cultural hub, and immersive experience, bringing indigenous peoples, communities of color, and grassroots voices to the forefront.
