Duke University presents
The environmental justice movement has been foundational in the longstanding fight for equity and equality in the U.S. for decades. Today, environmental injustice continues to be a topic of growing importance and salience for people both internationally and domestically. In an attempt to provide a wide-reaching introduction to the multi-faceted environmental justice movement, Duke University presents the first of many student-led environmental justice symposiums to come.
On March 19-20, 2021, we will be hosting Duke University's Environmental Justice Symposium 2021, a conference focused on connecting students to professionals and activists who are currently working in the environmental justice and conservation space. We are so excited for you to join us!
This event is put on through partnerships with the Undergraduate Environmental Union (UEU), Duke Conservation Tech (DCT), Muslim Student Association (MSA), and Blue Devils United (BDU).
This symposium is supported in part by the National Institute Of Environmental Health Sciences of the National Institutes of Health under the Duke University Superfund Research Program (award P42ES010356) and the Duke University Program in Environmental Health (award T32ES021432). Symposium content is solely the responsibility of the speakers and does not necessarily represent the official views of the National Institutes of Health.
