Please join us for UofL's Sustainability Roundtable series on alternating Fridays at 11am! Professor Tony Arnold and the five Resilience Justice Fellows hike at the Parklands at Floyds Fork on a retreat in summer 2018, while brainstorming about upcoming projects and sporting their Resilience Justice team tank tops.

Our speaker on October 12th will be Professor Tony Arnold (Brandeis School of Law), speaking on Resilience Justice. Resilience justice is the idea that not all communities have equal tools and resources to be adaptive. Resilience justice is equity in the capacities, vulnerabilities and conditions of marginalized communities, such as low-income communities, communities of color, Native American communities and other communities with inequitable resources, power, and/or vulnerabilities.

The format is a 30-40 minute presentation from a variety of speakers, followed by 20-30 minute open discussion. Please feel free to bring your lunch! Anyone with an interest in sustainability can give talks at the speaker series and participate in the audience, including faculty, staff, students, practitioners, teachers, government officials, and members of the public. If you would like to give a presentation, or would like to hear a particular speaker, please contact Daniel DeCaro.

Oct. 26 - Dr. Tamara Sluss (Director, UofL's Interdisciplinary Masters Program in Sustainability), Title TBA
Nov. 9 - Fulbright Scholar Tiago de Melo Cartaxo (Nova University, Lisbon, Portugal), Title TBA
