PEOPLE OF COLOR IN GREEN SPACES
About the Project & Webinar Series:
Sustainability is a buzzword, used in every intersection of our lives these days, but what does it actually mean? What does a sustainable world in our communities look like? And why should it matter us, our friends, and our families and communities?
People of Color in Green Spaces webinars answer these questions by highlighting the opportunities presented by a sustainable future, and in turn paving the way to lasting intergenerational wealth, improved public health, community vitality, and equity.
People of Color in Green Spaces is a focused, People of Color driven series, comprised of informative networked events for People of Color with any background experience that is interested in sustainability, providing attendees with the know-how, resources, and support to leverage and make sustainable change in their own communities and professional pursuits.

A Message From The Founder
Even in the most dire of times during the COVID-19 pandemic around the globe, the focus on green sustainability must be embedded in OUR cultures. Sustainability remains a critical part in securing future generations, especially in the most vulnerable underserved communities of black and brown people. Sustainability work must continue to be championed to ensure greenhouse gases are reduced through clean energy methods by using the cleanest resources available. It’s now time to take action in connecting with industry professionals and partners to get educated and create a job pipeline in OUR communities.
