In the rapidly unfolding environmental and humanitarian emergency resulting from climate change and biodiversity loss, our common future depends on researchers across disciplines working together to address the crisis, recognizing that it will not affect all equally and that justice issues are therefore a crucial part of the conversation. With this in mind, on March 13-17, 2023, the Loyola Sustainability Research Centre (LSRC) and Loyola College for Diversity and Sustainability (LCDS) will collaborated with Concordia's 4TH SPACE to host a cross-disciplinary sustainability conference on the environmental crisis, entitled Research that matters: Sustainability, biodiversity, and justice in a time of crisis. This hybrid in-person/online event will bring together faculty, students, and the broader community from across Concordia and beyond to share and discuss relevant research from all discilpinary perspectives on both campuses at Concordia.
Concordia University and most of the participants in this event will be located in Tiohtià:ke (Montreal), on the unceded lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation, one of the founding nations of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. If you are not in Tiohtià:ke, you can find out whose land you are on here.
