UAB’s The Edge of Chaos

We cordially invite you to join the Renew Alabama Conference for a day of community cross-sector conversation, workshops, and training with a diverse group of partners uniting under a common banner to work toward social and climate justice.

When: Saturday, May 6, 2017, 9:00 AM-4:00 PM

Where: The Edge of Chaos

The hard truth is that those who contribute the least to the climate crisis will be impacted the most, exacerbating social injustices that many are already working hard to combat. Addressing climate change presents the opportunity to support these efforts, while fostering community-led solutions and economic development in historically disadvantaged communities.

This event will consist of workshops that address the local impacts of climate change and how to use storytelling in advocacy work. Breakout sessions will cover topics such as clean air, clean water, renewable energy, community organizing, and faith and climate.

The day will also serve as the launch for Renew Alabama, a coalition of organizations, businesses, and individuals working together to advance renewable energy, climate solutions, and energy equity. By combining diverse perspectives and innovative thinking, we will create the blueprint for a healthier, more sustainable Alabama.

We will end the day with a network reception!

On behalf of all our partners, we hope you’ll join us. To RSVP, click here and complete your registration by May 1. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, May 6.
