GF2022 - September 20-23

(Invite-only Workshop)

Co-convened by the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Futures Laboratory™ at Arizona State University and The Earth League, GF22 will bring together members of the public and private sectors, scientists, youth and activists from around the globe to formulate a bold and actionable agenda to push the boundaries of discourse on what can and must be done now. Conference leaders will publish and promote a roadmap that outlines the far-reaching, crucial solutions developed at this conference–solutions that are simultaneously ambitious and achievable.

The Global Futures Laboratory provides key engagement spaces for scientists, educators and leaders across ASU and around the world to address critical issues related to the future of planet Earth. Rather than solving problems after they arise, we seek to design a future in which humanity not only survives, but thrives.

1:30 - 3:15pm:

Session One: Healthy Democracy, Healthy Planet: How Environmental Groups Can Address the Unjust Impacts of the Inflation Reduction Act and the Politics that Produced Them

Passage of the IRA legislation re-ignited a fierce debate within the climate and environment movements. Many environmental organizations rushed to celebrate and embrace the Act while other critical voices, primarily Black, Brown, and Indigenous leaders, sounded alarms that the fossil fuel provisions would sacrifice frontline communities. This session will use the IRA as a critical case study to discuss the importance of racial equity at the federal level and on boards and senior leadership of environmental, climate and conservation organizations.

3:45 - 5:30pm:

Session Two: Assessing the America the Beautiful and Justice 40 Initiatives: Ensuring that the Reality Matches the Rhetoric and Climate Finance Centers Equity

As the strategy and implementation of initiatives such as America the Beautiful and Justice 40 are being negotiated, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss how to catalyze a paradigm shift in the environmental movement that results in more equitable distribution of access, resources, and influence.

Launched in 2013, the Green Leadership Trust works to build an environmental and conservation movement that wins. We are unique in a number of ways because we are the first cross-organizational effort focused on building power and diversity in any advocacy sector. We are guided first and foremost by our responsibility as fiduciaries of the organizations we represent.
