Sustainable Living and Environmental Justice

Prof. Joe Trumpey, Director, Sustainable Living Experience, The Univ. of Michigan
Rachel Beglin, Senior in PitE and Graham Scholar, The Univ. of Michigan

The Sustainable Living Experience is a built-in living-learning community for freshman students who want to fully immerse themselves in a culture that acknowledges and appreciates sustainability. Students go on nature retreats, work at farms, take a seminar together, and challenge each other to be more environmentally conscious people and students. Environmental Justice looks at environmental racism and equity and provides a social justice perspective to environmental issues. This talk discusses how environmental issues intersect with various identities, and a little bit of history of the movement, and provides resources for the audience to learn more or get involved.
