The first declaration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day took place in 1992 in Berkeley, California. This year marks the first time a U.S. president has officially recognized Indigenous Peoples’ Day as a national holiday. The EcoBlock team recognizes and honors Indigenous People’s Day and the importance of recognizing the land we are on and our responsibility to become better stewards of the environment.
Last month, Dr. Sascha von Meier gave a presentation on the Oakland EcoBlock for Berkeley’s Science at Cal lecture series. In this blog, Miriam Aczel provides an overview of the engaging public lecture, and highlights what EcoBlock’s co-PI is optimistic about.
On April 21, the EcoBlock team gave a presentation for the Urban Land Institute (ULI) San Francisco. The event drew over 50 attendees from across the Bay Area from a wide range of backgrounds. Read our event recap and watch the recording here!
