There is a ‘single story’ at the root of the meaning we’ve made of the outdoors, conservation, and our recreation in those environments. That single story, we’re coming to understand, has limited our ability to relate to those defined out of the story. Relationship is at the heart of the diversity, equity, and inclusion challenge to the ‘single story.’  This workshop will explore the ‘single story’ that defines our work and our play and the disrupting narratives of diversity, equity, and inclusion that are shifting the boundaries of power, margin, and center. A short reading or film clip will be assigned in advance.

Running-Grass is director of Three Circles Center which, since 1989, works on bringing multicultural perspectives and practices to environmental and outdoor education. He is also a senior lecturer in the Urban Environmental Education Program at Antioch University, Seattle, where his focus is on multicultural education, critical pedagogy, and multicultural environmental leadership. His interest in the  outdoors took shape during an Outward Bound course in 1969 and was deepened at Dartmouth Outward Bound in 1974.
