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.
