Sustainability is the balance of equity, environment, and economics so current and future generations can thrive. To build just and sustainable communities in our region, current systemic, cross-generational, and sector-specific environmental issues MUST be addressed. Sustainability can only be achieved through justice; where it offers the same degree of protection from environmental and health hazards and equal access to the decision-making processes dictating healthy environments and quality of life for ALL. This presentation will address how the university sector can serve as an asset to the environmental justice movement and assist in dismantling oppressive systems that perpetuate social and environmental injustices.
