Environmental Justice in the Bay Area is a student initiated course at Stanford University that is being offered for the first time Spring 2016 under EARTHSYS/URBANST 16SI.
It seeks to expose students to the intersectionality of social justice and environmental well being. Through student-led talks and field trips around the Bay, the course will push participants to think about connections between issues of privilege, race, health, gender equality and class in environmental issues. Students from all experiences and fields of study are encouraged to join us to gain a sense of place, engage critically with complex challenges, and learn about environmental justice in and out of the classroom. To see if the class is being offered this quarter, go to explorecourses.stanford.edu.
Environmental Justice in the Bay Area is a Cardinal Course endorsed by the Stanford Haas Center for Public Service and the Associated Students of Stanford University.
