Join us for iSEE’s first TED Talk: Eco-Edition, on Thursday, February 25 from 7-8pm! This month’s theme is “Environmental Justice.” Together, participants will view a TED Talk presented in October 2020 by David Lammy, the first Black Member of Parliament to hold the Justice post in British Parliament, titled "Climate Justice Can't Happen Without Racial Justice." Afterward, all are invited to participate in a guided discussion and roundtable.

Our host is Leah Courtney, a U of I sophomore studying Civil and Environmental Engineering with minors in Spanish and the Sustainability, Energy, and Environment Fellows Program. A student member of the Zero Waste Sustainability Working Advisory Team, Leah is passionate about the environment and social justice.
