Online course on "Environmental Justice"

Please find below the announcement of an exciting free online course on "Environmental Justice" organised by the Global Environmental Justice Group at the University of East Anglia:

"The world faces challenging environmental problems. They are challenging because different people typically contribute differently to environmental change, and because its effects will be felt differently by different people in different places.This free online course will help you understand how injustice is a common feature of many environmental problems. Over 10 weeks, we'll look at deforestation, biodiversity loss, climate change and other environmental issues, asking questions such as:

● Can we manage tropical forests to increase timber revenues and carbon stocks, while ensuring that the people who live in them can fulfil their own subsistence needs and vision of a healthy ecosystem?

● How can protected areas strike the right balance between contemporary global interests in species conservation, local interests, the needs of future generations and rights of nature?"
