The Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice supports initiatives that address wicked problems, particularly those that have impacts that improve environmental and social justice. One such project, Green Streets in South is a community-led initiative to address climate change and the urban heat island effect in South Tucson while improving socio-economic prospects of chronically unemployed and marginalized adults through landscape business training. Through the experiences of the project members of Green Streets in South Tucson, attendees will learn more about strategies for creating a comprehensive community initiative and best practices for collaborating across organizations and missions.
