A special evening of dinner, music, movement and networking as we look back on the 2022-2023 Climate and Nature Emergency (CNE) Catalyst Program and launch the report “Moving With Storms”, which offers an overview of the many activities, new initiatives, challenges and lessons learned during the past year.

The 2022-2023 CNE Catalyst Program offered unique and innovative opportunities for inter- and transdisciplinary collaborations to address the urgency, scale and complexity of climate and biodiversity crises and movements for climate justice. We connected scholars, students, artists, staff, disciplines, university units, sectors, and communities to activate new ways of knowing and acting together in these challenging socio-ecological times.
