Shelter is a basic need. For most of us, adequate shelter in the form of a home is fundamental to overall health and well being.
We – all of us – should be able to operate, maintain, and adapt our housing to remain safe, functional and beneficial, even in changing conditions. Unfortunately, in most every community this isn’t the case. Not surprisingly, the disparities in vulnerability occur across racial, geographic and income-related lines.
Widespread transformation is urgently needed to address the compounding factors of climate change, inadequate housing and environmental injustice in our communities. Green New Deal Housing, a nonprofit organization in Duluth, is working at these intersections, with public and private collaboration.
The Lake Superior Living Labs Network https://livinglabs.lakeheadu.ca/ hosted Rachel Wagner, Green New Deal Housing interim executive director, for a zoom public presentation and Q and A, May 24.
The recording of this session is now available on the LSLLN website (scroll down slightly to the mini meet-up videos), we hope you enjoy watching it.
