About the Event

WEBINAR REGISTRATION

Time spent in nature has the power to teach us, restore us, and bring us joy. However, for Black and other racialized people, nature experiences are often hindered by the fact that they rarely see people like themselves reflected in environmental groups, nature activities, or nature-related media. This lack of representation reinforces the perception that nature is a white space and is for white people. Set against this backdrop, Nature Canada has partnered with two experts in the intersection of race and the outdoors, Jacqueline Scott and Ambika Tenneti, to produce an important new report entitled, “Race and Nature in the City.” This report explores the barriers to urban nature experienced by young racialized people and presents recommendations that can be implemented by any environmental or nature group. During this webinar, Jacqueline and Ambika will present the findings and recommendations of this report and answer questions about how to effectively and equitably engage youth of colour.
