Join us April 5-7 for a weekend of learning and sharing ideas around real vs. false solutions to climate change and the environmental injustices facing Kentuckians. Together, we'll learn about the Just Transition framework, analyze how the media influences our perception of possible solutions, and brainstorm genuine solutions that will truly solve the climate crisis. It will also be a great time to meet other young activists from around the state working from campus to town hall to protect our right to a liveable future! RSVP to attend.
