Three upcoming webinars – food systems, resistance/extinction and conservation/community development

Creating a More Just Food System: 

Thursday, April 15 at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET

The failure of the federal response during the pandemic resulted in part from long-standing ties between industry and government that have been costly for workers, animals and biodiversity. But things are starting to change. People are eating less meat and dairy, more local governments are embracing the importance of changing diets, and the food movement is becoming more inclusive.

Resistance and Extinction: A Conversation about Thoreau, Loss and Hope: 

Thursday, April 22 at 4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET

The Center is teaming up with the Thoreau Society for a special Earth Day event to discuss resistance and extinction. We’ll explore the works of the beloved 19th-century naturalist and philosopher Henry David Thoreau and how they relate to today’s fight to end the extinction crisis.

The Center for Biological Diversity is teaming up with staff from Mozambique’s Gorongosa National Park to present the documentary, Our Gorogonsa. In the film, a young Mozambican elephant ecologist shares the inspiring story of how the park is becoming a new model for wildlife conservation and community development in Africa, with a special focus on educating girls and empowering women.
