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.
