What’s the Environmental Joy conference about?

The Yale Center for Environmental Justice (YCEJ) at the Yale School of the Environment is partnering with USAID and others to host the 5th annual Global Environmental Justice Conference on Environmental Joy. The work of environmental justice communities around the world would not be possible without the element of joy. Joy holds communities together in the face of injustice and adversity and it powers resilience, survival, and even thriving as deep resources that powers big change. Environmental Joy will be a multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural exploration of how practices and experiences of joy can uncover transformative solutions to our most pressing environmental challenges.

The workshop tracks will be highly interactive and we hope you will be able to attend. Please apply for scholarships here and learn more about our exciting program on our website
