About the Series

The Clement A. Price Institute continues the Fall 2022 Series of Urgent Conversations Toward Just Ecological Futures with the recognition that multidisciplinary scholarship and cross-community exploration of the regional crises of land, water, place, food, and climate. This series strives to break down silos of knowledge and practice. We gather engaged, creative, and thoughtful people who learn by doing. We seek to acknowledge Indigenous knowledges, of islands, the Americas, African, Asia and our planet, with the rigorous relational explorations of ecosystems.

The Price Institute is committed to cultivating deep historical understanding of and working toward just ecological futures in our region and beyond. The series will hold regular in-person and live stream public gatherings.
