What Does the Earth Ask of Us?

Event date/time: 

Wednesday, September 30, 2020 - 6:00pm

A keynote by Robin Wall Kimmerer, Distinguished Professor and author of Braiding Sweetgrass 

Co-presented by the Arts Extension Service and Creative Women Leading Climate Action

We are showered every day with the gifts of the Earth and yet we are tied to institutions which relentlessly ask, what more can we take? Drawing upon both scientific and Indigenous knowledges, this talk explores the covenant of reciprocity.

How might we use the gifts and the responsibilities of human people in support of mutual thriving in a time of ecological crisis?

This event will be live and recorded on Zoom, Facebook and YouTube. Spanish interpretation and closed captioning will be available.

Part of the UMass History Department's 2020-21 Feinberg Series: Planet on a Precipice: Histories and Futures of the Environmental Emergency
