Event Description

Faculty talk by professor Giovanna Di Chiro, Lang Professor for Issues of Social Change
This talk explores the "three pillars" of sustainability (ecology, economics, and equity) through the critical lens of environmental justice. What do we mean when we talk about "sustainability"? How do different groups of people understand and define the goals and visions of sustainability? The presentation will provide examples of sustainability initiatives led by environmental justice organizations focusing on local agriculture, food security, and energy and climate justice. It will also discuss local partnerships and student-led community-based learning projects with community groups in Philadelphia and Chester, Pa. Join us for a reception following the talk to network with members of the sustainability organizations at Swarthmore College.
