Community Event

Ecological Justice Not Ecological Impairment: Co-Creating a Healthier and Ecologically Just World

What kind of society would we be living in if in place of the hyper-individualization of illness, health and health risk, we recognized that the conditions that cause most common illnesses are related to environmental, not individual, impairments such as air, soil and water pollution, the food desertification of low income neighborhoods, unsafe working conditions and long working hours, etc?

This 6 week long course provides a conceptual framework for contemplation and action around this core question. The course will be oriented towards local and collective action for health and ecological justice so participants can bring their learning home and co-create in community.

Space is limited, register online.
