People & Planet: Introduction to Environmental Sustainability, Advocacy, and Justice
July 15th & 16th, 2020
This two-day session will introduce students to environmental sustainability through a social justice lens and the breadth of careers built around sustainability research, education, and advocacy. On the first day, participants will learn about the connection between human activity and climate change and develop a baseline understanding of environmental sustainability. This session will then be followed by another session deep-diving into environmental justice and the connection between the climate crisis and environmental racism. Finally, it will end with a workshop on raptivism.
