At the intersection of contemporary thinking in healthcare, education, design, planning, and conservation is a growing recognition that human well-being is interdependent with the natural world: in addition to food, medicine, and materials, our mental, physical, social, and spiritual health improves by spending time in natural places. Join us to learn about the latest innovations in research, policy, design, and practice; discuss common challenges; and identify shared opportunities to collectively and equitably expand the potential of nature to improve our health.

This year’s symposium will include an afternoon workshop to begin scoping the information and research needs of communities and professionals who are striving to implement the health benefits of nature directly in their work.

Please take a moment to forward this invitation to your friends and colleagues. Your recommendation is our best way to spread the word! Note that in addition to general admission we are offering discounted tickets and scholarships to ensure the symposium is accessible to all. We are also seeking UW student volunteers to help staff the event: contact c3uw.

We’re making a video and we need your help!

We’re making a video and we need your help! This campaign we’re working on is called SAVE THE HUMANS. It’s a youth-led, bipartisan coalition of kids who believe that climate change is the biggest threat facing our nation. They are focusing the conversation around saving a new endangered species: OURSELVES!

We need student-aged people who are both environmentally conscious and are advocates for a conservative social or political issue, i.e. Pro-Life, 2nd Amendment advocacy, etc. We want this person (people?) to spend a couple hours canvassing for 1631 with someone on the opposite side of the political spectrum to signal that voting to Save the Humans is more important than our day-to-day politics. And we’re going to put the whole thing on camera!

We want to shoot this video this weekend, Saturday, Oct. 13, in the Seattle area. It would require several hours of your time, and would involve an on-camera interview and a couple of hours of door-to-door canvasing for Initiative 1631.

Democracy through Dialogue – Fall 2018 Student Opportunities

We believe that now, more than ever, we must engage in dialogue with people who have different beliefs in order to broaden our perspectives and generate understanding and empathy. The Democracy through Dialogue series was created for this reason. This program welcomes UW students of any background or ideology to participate in a facilitated, intimate, lively and productive dialogue about critical issues of our time.

Democracy through Dialogue aims to revive the art of public discourse across difference. It will do so by helping UW students develop their capacity to connect and disagree in ways that are both personally and civically constructive. The premise is that authentic, compassionate connection across difference is essential to our ongoing pursuit of justice and liberty for all.

For questions, please email engage@uw.edu.

To visit our website and apply, please go to www.uw.edu/carlson/dialogue.
