Ninth Annual HBCU Climate Change Conference
October 11 - October 15
The Deep South Center for Environmental Justice in collaboration with the Bullard Center for Environmental & Climate Justice at Texas Southern University will host the in-person Ninth Annual HBCU Climate Change Conference October 11-15, 2023.
The conference brings together HBCU faculty and students, researchers, climate professionals, and environmental justice and coastal community residents impacted by toxic facilities and severe weather events related to climate change to bridge the gap between theory and the experiential realities of climate change.
The conference will address issues related to climate justice, adaptation, community resilience, global climate issues, and other major climate change topics (i.e. transportation, energy sources, carbon emissions, green jobs/green economy, just transition, and community economic development).
COVID19 VACCINATION IS PREFERRED FOR ALL CONFERENCE PARTICIPANTS.
Another goal of the conference is to engage high school students in the activities of the conference. High school students will be introduced to climate science, within the context of how their daily life activities affect climate. The sessions will be interactive, including computer-simulated games. COVID19 VACCINATION IS PREFERED FOR ALL CONFERENCE PARTICIPANTS.
