Our goal for ECALA as scholars and activists committed to confronting the climate crisis -- the defining existential and basic survival issue of the twenty-first century -- is to spark an open process of cross-generational intersectional co-creation. No one has the answers to this crisis, but we will help you find your own path and connect you with like-minded counterparts around the world to align hearts, hands, and minds together around it. Imagination, creativity, crossing boundaries, and authentic engagement are the secret ingredients we hope everyone will bring to the table for this journey of a lifetime!
