Climate justice, cutting-edge ecological research, and policy changes are all good things to engage in, but when do we have time to collectively do this work as a college/university/community?  

As a way to answer this question, this unusual speaker series session will focus on action-planning for students, staff, faculty and community members and will be hosted by members of the Departments of Environmental Studies and Environmental Sciences.    A diversity of Huxley College staff and faculty members will host facilitated discussions as an action-planning process with a focus on generating a diversity of activities that we can engage in to help make the world better.  Bring your ideas, your thoughts, and use the time to meet and connect with each other over important environmental causes.

Accessibility (hearing) accommodations available on request (requested 2 days in advance - email

Nick Stanger works as an associate professor of environmental education in the Department of Environmental Studies at Western Washington University. His research uses an educationalist lens and participatory techniques to understand environmental sociology, ecological identity, transformative places, and Indigenous resurgence with a particular focus on the Salish Sea.  He pursues projects that utilize his unique background as an ecologist, conservationist, educator, and knowledge mobilizer, and looks for ways to support participants and provide nuance and complexity to pressing issues. He aims to understand, mobilize, and help create space for Indigenous communities to tell their stories of resurgence, cultural adaptation, and sovereignty all while helping find pathways, protocol, and critical understandings amongst settler-colonial communities. He completed his Doctorate at the University of Victoria. The main focus of his doctoral research revolved around the learning that occurs from revisiting significant childhood places (, and their lasting effects on our lives.
