Geography students blog on environmental justice
As part of a module on ‘Contemporary issues in human geography’, a group of undergraduates in our Department of Geography have been blogging about environmental justice issues.
Among the topics covered by the student bloggers over the past couple of months have been:
- The effect of the Belo Monte dam on indigenous Brazilian peoples
- Air pollution activist Majora Carter and her influence on environmental policies in the Bronx
- Proposals for solar farms in the Mojave Desert
- An obituary for Kenyan Nobel Laureate Wangaari Maathai
- The extinction of Aboriginal languages in Australia
Packed with relevant links, video clips and other useful resources, the Environmental Justice: Issues, Theories and Policy blog makes fascinating reading and a is great testament to the hard work and dedication of our student geographers.
