The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Climate Adaptation Science Center (National CASC), in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service National Conservation Training Center, is hosting a webinar series from February 29 to May 10, 2024 (3-4 PM ET) on how to integrate principles of climate and environmental justice into research and resource management.

Circular divided into horizontal layers of vignettes illustrating interactions between people and natural world.

Speakers will share research and best practices of environmental and climate justice and will engage audiences in facilitated "coffee hours” where interested participants can connect with and learn from one another. Participants will explore the ethics of engaging with populations most vulnerable to the impacts of environmental and climate change, which are often low-income communities, communities of color, Indigenous and Tribal communities and people facing disenfranchisement.  

The National CASC invites all audiences interested in the intersection between climate and environmental justice and environmental research to join this series. The webinars may be of particular value to researchers looking to apply justice principles to their own work and communities seeking to lay out clear expectations for researchers they collaborate with. 

This series is centered in the USGS’s vision of delivering actionable science to inform equitable, data-driven decisions inclusive of all people. This contributes to a better future where everyone enjoys equal protection from environmental harm, equal access to environmental resources, and meaningful participation in decision making. 

For up-to-date information, registration links, and access to webinar recordings, please go to the series website.  

Registration for coffee hour discussions will be limited to 40 people. Registration for these sessions will be on a first come, first served basis. Webinars and discussion sessions will be held using the platform Zoom. Webinars will be recorded, transcribed and made available on the USGS website. Coffee hour discussion sessions will not be recorded. 

This webinar series is hosted by the National CASC in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service National Conservation Training Center. Special thanks to Codie Winn (South Central CASC) for designing the graphics used in promotional materials for this series.
