The theme for the 2021 Virtual Intergenerational Seminar is All In for Climate Justice: Food Equity and Sustainability. Read more and reflect on this theme in preparation for the event. The 2021 Planning Committee is currently working on creating the programs and activities that will make up this year's virtual event, so stay tuned for further details about what to expect. Registration will open in December 2020.

Seminar Theme

The Intergenerational Spring Seminar, hosted by the UUA Office at the UN aims to instill in Unitarian Universalist youth and adults a commitment to global engagement and the skills to take action locally to address global issues.

The 2021 virtual Seminar is proudly co-hosted by the Unitarian Universalist Ministry for Earth.

The intergenerational seminar is an opportunity to collaborate with others while learning how to be a global activist. Through workshops, peer and expert-led panel discussions, community building activities, and worship services, you will undergo a transformative process of learning, reflection, and growth while exploring some of the most challenging issues facing humanity today.

Programs for the 2021 Intergenerational Seminar are still in the works. Check out the schedule from the 2020 virtual Seminar for a general sense of what types of activities may be included.

2020 Programs

Take a look back at the themes and take-aways from prior Intergenerational Spring Seminars hosted by the UUA Office at the United Nations. Each year's topic examines a different global justice or human rights issue.

Past Seminars

Addressing the 2020 theme, Seminar participants considered local and global engagement to take action for climate justice such as centering people most at risk, shifting power away from polluters, and protecting the planet for a sustainable future.
