“All In for Climate Justice: Food Equity and Sustainability”
Friday, April 9, 2021 – Sunday, April 11, 2021 | All Virtual

As we work to preserve the Earth for the future generations, it is impossible to ignore the disparity of healthy food distribution across ethnicities and socioeconomic conditions. Please join the Unitarian Universalist Association Office at the UN for the annual Intergenerational Spring Seminar “All In for Climate Justice: Food Equity and Sustainability.” This Seminar seeks to tackle food inequity globally while creating reimagined systems for food sustainability and security. The virtual Seminar is proudly co-hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth. Within the Seminar community, you’ll have the opportunity to develop skills to take action, expand your knowledge about the issues, build your justice network, and experience spiritual deepening and creativity! This year, registration (open until March 18) offers flexible rates for equity and accessibility.
