Sem in Env Justice: Balancing Equity, Enviro, and Enterprise

ENVJ401

Description

This course advances students environmental justice professional skills so that they can find real-world solutions to make sure that the people are treated fairly and have meaningful involvement in the development, implementation, and enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policy. Students start to develop their final capstone project that provides a solution to a real-world environmental justice problem and that addresses a key tenant of Environmental Justice: the recognition that environmental goods (such as clean air and water) and environmental harms (such as toxic waste) are not always distributed equitably among populations. Since environmental harms fall more heavily on low-income communities, communities of color, immigrant communities, indigenous peoples, and other population demographics, students examine the various reasons for these disparate impacts and will start to offer possible solutions grounded in law, policy, and practice.
