The capacity in which disabled people are able to take part within climate action is so often pushed to the side by the media and climate groups alike.

ESJ and MUISS are collaborating for the first time to bring students an International Sustainability Food Fair! For so long, there has been a failure to adequately recognise the culturalism of popular plant based eating. So, these two departments will be hosting cultural clubs on the lemon scented lawns giving away plant based foods. This will occur in conjunction with student performers performing for all attendees.
