Worldmaking: From Colonialism to Climate Justice is a pair of free workshops that focuses on how climate change and social inequality are bound together and how we can advance towards a just, climate-safe future. The workshops are designed for high school students to explore the history and present-day realities of colonialism in shaping the contemporary world, including the climate crisis and persistent inequality. Students will discuss social transformation, the work of repair, and consider the role of the imagination in worldmaking. Activities (including group discussions, zine making, and writing exercises) will enable students to envision what a future centering climate justice looks like to them.
Workshops will take place on October 10 and October 24 from 4-6:30PM at 105 Wooster Street, New York.
