Course Description

Environmental Justice and Sustainability is designed to fosters students’ knowledge of and capacity for environmental leadership by exploring sustainable solutions to socio-environmental issues that adversely affect marginalized communities. Issues discussed include global warming, lack of access to resources, overconsumption of resources, and ground, air, water, and chemical pollution. We approach these topics through non-fiction texts, novels, and digital resources. By learning histories and politics associated with particular environmental issues, students become better equipped to theorize viable resolutions to them. This learning experience is a practical and theoretical effort toward sustainability. This course is ideal for students interested in environmental justice, sustainability, environmental racisms and classism, or environmental activism. It is available to students from all disciplines and educational backgrounds.
