What is interpretation’s role in the Environmental Justice movement? Nature interpreters strive to inspire a conservation ethic by connecting visitors with our treasured natural places. Cultural interpreters create understanding among communities by creating awareness and incorporating multiple perspectives into important stories. The intersection of those two disciplines—the interpretation of nature and culture—highlights the disproportionate negative impacts of the environmental crisis on communities of color.
NAI’s two newest special-interest communities, the Sustainability Section and the Justice, Equity, Diversity, Accessibility, and Inclusion (JEDAI) Section, are teaming up to host a free, three-day online workshop on the role interpreters can play in bringing attention to the heightened effects of the climate crisis on underserved communities.
Stay tuned for more information, and if you’re interested in presenting a session, contact Caroline Lochner (Sustainability Section) or Richard Munoz (JEDAI Section).
The Interpreting Environmental Justice workshop will provide a space for networking with other NAI members, sharing successes and challenges, developing new skills, learning new perspectives, and engaging in meaningful conversations about the role interpreters play in environmental justice issues.
All donations and nonmember fees will be allocated towards our annual fund, supporting the sustainability of our organization and enabling us to provide ongoing training opportunities like these. NAI credits cannot be used for this event.
