Remembering Forward: Alaska’s Just Transition Webinar Series

Webinar #3: Rebuild & Reimagine June 3 at 11:30 AM

Young people are our future. Now more than ever they are speaking up, holding us accountable, and leading us in mobilizing from an extractive economy to a regenerative economy. As we move forward in these unprecedented times, we have the opportunity to Rebuild and Reimagine a Just Transition together. We know the solutions and what is no longer serving us, but how do we get there? How do we center Indigenous world-views and uplift Tribal Sovereignty in this process toward sustainability?

Join us as we collectively build our vision and strategize toward a Just Transition now and into the future!
