In spring 2022, along with Urban Growers Collective and UIC-PACT, an open forum E2S Climate Hub: Paths Toward Sustainable and Just Community Engagement was held in Auburn Gresham. The goal was to share findings from the Accelerating University-Community Partnerships for Climate Justice project and begin exploring community-centered solutions to navigating university barriers that hinder reciprocal and long-term university-community partnerships. Based on discussions, it was evident that research academic institutions like UIC need to move towards transparent, accountable and accessible processes that are campus wide.

To continue our efforts, a second forum will be held on October 7, 2022, E2S Climate Hub: Paths Toward Sustainable and Just Community Engagement Part 2 to advance the process of creating equitable pathways for university-community engagement guided by community feedback and long-term partnerships. The purpose of this forum is to bring UIC faculty, staff, students and community members together to cease siloed progress and unify efforts towards equitable community engagement.

Please note if you would be interested in taking transportation. Transportation from UIC to location will be available with more details to come.
