Panels

Intersectionality

Speakers:

What is LGBTQ sustainability and what are we doing at this Summit?  Open your mind and the day with a panel of forward thinkers exploring the possibilities of this intersection, the role of LGBTQ individuals, communities and future directions.

Queer and Present Danger

Speakers:

When action to prevent climate change slows, we are faced with an uncertain future. The LGBTQ community has a history of responding to disaster, but also faces a future of uncertain challenges.  Prepared communities, response, vulnerability and resilience are just a few important themes explored in a discussion of a Queer and Present Danger.
