Loyola University Chicago 2020 Climate Change Conference: Accompanying Youth to a Hope-filled Future

Thursday, March 12, 2020 to Friday, March 13, 2020

Twenty-three-year-old Kelsey Juliana is suing the United States government for her constitutional right to a livable planet. Teenager Tokata Iron Eyes organizes and advocates for indigenous rights and against fossil fuel interests as part of the Standing Rock Youth. Recent Loyola graduate Paul Campion helps lead the Sunrise Movement in Chicago and works with an army of young people to protest climate change and usher in a Green New Deal. Across the country, the climate crisis has mobilized young people to action.

Listen to their stories, respond, and become inspired to act on behalf of the planet during this year’s Keynote Conversation at Loyola’s sixth climate change conference.
