This is part 2 of 4 in our Mental Health in the Movement series!
Over the last year of the Covid-19 pandemic, many on-campus projects have halted and navigating campus bureaucracy has become more of a challenge. In their stead, students on college and university campuses began to tap into another realm of organizing called mutual aid. Now that we’ve hit the 1-year mark and the country is beginning to open up again, there is a lot of uncertainty about what campuses — and campus work — will look like moving forward. During this session, Cookie Desai (she/her) will be exploring some of the following questions about mutual aid, campus organizing, and the possibility of utilizing both frameworks on your own campus as we work to create a more just and equitable Zero Waste Movement. How can we utilize lessons learned from this era to define what mutual aid is within the context of a campus? How do you engage in mutual aid and make it fun? How do you keep the momentum going on your projects and in your communities in a way that is both sustainable and looks towards the future? How do you keep team members motivated along with you in a way that priorities care over the bottom line?
