Environmental Expo 2021

Neighbor to Neighbor, Springfield, in partnership with the Humanities Action Lab, created the Environmental Expo to spotlight the fight against environmental injustice in Springfield as part of Climates of Inequality, an internationally-traveling exhibit. Through a month-long series of interactive workshops and the accompanying website, The Environmental Expo aims to develop the leadership of community members to lead the decision making about what happens in their community. Communities bearing the biggest burden of pollution are resilient and ready to take action. Join community members and leaders to learn, engage, and take charge of our future!

The Environmental Expo will run for 4 weeks from May 17 to June 15. Learn more about the Expo workshops and sign up here.
