Bronx Environmental Summit


Lehman College, CUNY will convene some of the nation’s leading environmental and climate scientists, educators and advocates for its inaugural Bronx Environmental Summit on March 22-23, 2021.

Addressing the world’s—and the Bronx’s--most pervasive environmental and public health problems will increasingly rely upon comprehensive and integrated strategies developed by experts across academic disciplines in collaboration with government, nonprofit organizations, and private stakeholder groups.

All climate change is local. Made possible by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Lehman College, CUNY’s first Bronx Environmental Summit is a no-cost, two-day, virtual conference that will engage local, regional and national leaders in climate and environmental science in a discussion about climate change, environmental justice and health equity and how the current and developing policies and initiatives aimed at addressing them may impact the Bronx, New York City and the world.

Developing future leaders. Uniquely, the Bronx Environmental Summit also aims to introduce student attendees to academic and career paths they may take to become scientists, advocates and policy makers equipped to solve the most pressing environmental problems in the 21st Century.


Keynote Speakers:

Robert D. Bullard
distinguished professor, urban planning and environmental policy
Texas Southern University

Radley Horton
scientist and research professor
Columbia University

Peggy Shepard
cofounder and executive director
WE ACT for Environmental Justice

Ubuntu Pedagogy in Pandemic Times: Teaching Africana Women's Responses

There has been abundant reporting on the coronavirus pandemic’s disproportionate impact on Black and Brown people and communities with preexisting conditions of economic, educational, housing and health precarities. In the face of the virus’s existential threat, Black women and women of color in Africa and the African Diaspora have mobilized, organized, networked, and taken collective action to fight the pandemic, locally and transnationally. Led by Lehman College professors and students, this multimedia, interactive presentation explores those women’s visions, strategies, and best practices through the prism of the African indigenous worldview of Ubuntu (oo-boon-too), the very essence of being human and inextricably connected to others.
