Earth Justice Day Event: “Reconnecting to Soil, Self & Society: An Exploration through Poetry, Photography, and Witnessing”

April 20 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


Naropa University presents its 7th annual Earth Justice Day keynote event with panelists Ruth Wallen, Ian Sanderson, and graduate student Ana Wysmann. The conversation will be on the topic of “Reconnecting to Soil, Self and Society—An exploration through poetry, photography, and witnessing.”

The event is open to the public and will begin with a welcome message from Joanna Macy, PhD, the scholar whose pioneering work has informed Naropa’s sustainability approach. Panelists will share their individual work in eco-art, poetics, and indigenous wisdom and discuss how it relates to what we can do to reconnect to self, society, soil, or all three. The other two panelists will ask questions and share their perspectives after each presentation, and the broader circle is invited to share as well. Sherry Ellms, faculty lead of the Joanna Macy Center, will guide attendees in an embodied practice to close the event.

The event will be held  April 20 from 12–1:30PM in-person or via Zoom.
