About Us 

We acknowledge global warming is of such immense scale, both having accumulated over time and cascading planet-wide with lots of varying local effects, that we often don’t know what to do. And this “hyperobject” envelops the multiple issues/sectors we already work on. It’s scary but we’re all in this together!

In the spirit of the Price Institute’s mission to foster an engaged university, we invite all to join our working group meetings on global warming and climate justice, to begin grappling with a problem whose immensity demands that we rethink current ways of teaching, researching, and organizing. It is open to all on campus, in Newark, Greater Newark, and those concerned about restoring the estuarial region. We also are reckoning with the foundational colonizing injustices to the Lenape peoples of the estuary and the deep harm of extreme extractions.

We seek to come together & to talk, surface our experiences, concerns, learn, and to reimagine.
