Derek Hoshiko, Community Engagement Manager at Climate Solutions, is the keynote speaker for the 2017 UW Earth Day celebration. Before the celebration begins, Derek is going to be available for a discussion on climate justice with students.
To find Gerberding B36, enter Gerberding Hall on the south side across from Johnson Hall and go down the stairs - B36 is the second door on the right.
Derek is currently working to develop an intersectional analysis of the climate justice and climate urgency, racial justice and anti-oppression work, and a just transition to a living economy that works for all. My interest in education, and reflective and contemplative practice is in connection to my relationship with E3 Washington, Cascadia Climate Collaborative, and Climate Solutions, and my sincere belief that we must think holistically and urgently about the climate crisis as being more than a scientific, political, or technological issue, rather a lens through which we look at every aspect of life and our work.
