ABOUT OUR VILLAGE [OurVillage.us]: OUR VILLAGE explores innovative solutions to the demands of indigenous peoples and communities of color to support locally driven action on the climate crisis, injustice, and inequality. All around the world, local communities are responding to climate change with powerful resilience, innovative action, and a spirit that can profoundly impact our world. OUR VILLAGE brings this spirit to New York City for Climate Week in September 2019, and invites people from all walks of life to belong to a community inspired by justice and our connection to the earth. We believe that by exploring creativity alongside ancestral and cultural wisdom, we can facilitate deep emotional connections, bringing together networks with new inspirational ideas. This is the second annual OUR VILLAGE, in 2018 we brought OUR VILLAGE to the Global Climate Action Summit with much success and excitement.

OUR VILLAGE is presented by If Not Us Then Who and Hip Hop Caucus, in partnership with the Global Alliance of Territorial Authorities. In partnership with MescoAmerican Alliance of Peoples and Forests (AMPB), Rainforest Foundation US, Amazon Watch, Rainforest Action Network, Amazon Frontlines, Pachamama Alliance, and Client Earth.
