A new Earth conversation is a transformative
climate initiative at Clark University

We have, as a planet, entered a time of profound reckoning.

Given the gravity and uncertainty of our situation,
the work of higher education must change.

A new Earth conversation

is our response to the challenge of these times.

Through a collective process of inquiry, listening and discernment,
new kinds of awareness, engagement and effective action become possible.

A new Earth conversation in this time

As we face the intersecting crises of ecocide, racism, the pandemic and the rise of authoritarianism, NEC is creating space to respond to this difficult time and consider paths toward local engagement.

NEC is currently developing a Collaborative course for fall 2021 that will explore how we might engage our community in moving toward a more resilient future. Details will soon be released.

Our Reader for this time of reckoning offers insight into the underlying connections between climate, social, and political crisis.
