Environmental Justice Incubator
The Environmental Justice Incubator brings together faculty from schools across NYU to discuss the intersection of social, environmental, and racial justice.
Convened by the Office of Global Inclusion and the Office of Sustainability, this initiative aims to address the connection between racial and environmental justice by creating a space to explore:
- Current and future opportunities for further research and scholarship around the intersections of environmental and racial justice;
- The connections to COVID-19 and the disproportionate impact on vulnerable and marginalized communities;
- Initiatives and synergetic projects faculty, administrators and students might already be working on; and
- Potential funding opportunities to support the NYU community’s work.
A key takeaway from previous conversations included the desire for a framework to further discuss overlapping research and coursework. In response we have established the NYU Environmental Justice Google group. Members of the NYU community can apply to join.
Stay up to date on environmental justice work at NYU by becoming a member of the Google group and signing up to receive emails from the Office of Sustainability and the Office of Global Inclusion, which includes the Center for Multicultural Education Programs (CMEP) and the LGBTQ+ Center.
