These interactive events include storytelling, conversation, and real-time problem-solving with Echoing Green Fellows who are bringing solutions to pressing social and environmental issues facing U.S. communities right now. Host Shumita Basu of WNYC’s “Morning Edition” will interview these experts on topics including food systems, immigration, climate change, criminal justice reform, and civic movements.
