The webinar, “Health and Equity in Action: A Case Study On How Atlanta-Based Colleges & Universities Are Benefiting Their Communities,” will take place on December 18th, 2pm EST. Join AASHE, the Center for Green Schools at USGBC and Second Nature for a webcast on health and equity. Panelists from Emory University and Spelman College will discuss the integrated process and climate adaptation to consider the campus’ role in addressing human health issues locally.
Using the city of Atlanta as a case study, the panel will look at how local colleges are meeting the needs of current students and community members as well as future generations through wellness programs, transportation initiatives, agricultural relationships and regional collaboratives, among other efforts. Different campus cultures will explored related to how their institutional story is unfolding to meet their sustainability goals on campus and within the city.
