In the past, Ripple week has been offered exclusively to our U.S. Grassroots Accelerator cohort but, now it is available to our larger community! Ripple Week is a series of free virtual events, designed to inspire, mobilize and amplify critical grassroots solutions that can meet this moment on the planet.
The theme for this year’s Ripple Week Series, and the meaning behind the Ripple Week Logo created by Mexican artist, Isabel Tello, is The Water Within Us. We were inspired by this image of the water that runs through each of us as we heal and protect ourselves, our communities and our planet.
This country was built by the enslavement of one people and the violent dispossession of another, the culture of white supremacy and the patriarchal strategies of colonization have set the stage for the current systems of oppression and injustice. Join Ruth Miller as we Untangle Colonization, as she discussed how the history of environmental conservation has mirrored colonial world-views and what possible strategies we can further in order to decolonize conservation.
