The Global Environmental Justice Atlas: a Tool for Research and Activism
Global movements for environmental justice and sustainability are perhaps among the most influential social forces of the 21st century. By defending customary land uses, contesting damaging industrial activities and demanding alternatives to development as usual, environmental movements shape the politics and practices of resource uses globally. Until recently, environmental conflicts and mobilizations have not been tracked systematically and with a global reach. In this talk, Dr. Arnim Scheidel introduces the Global Environmental Justice Atlas (EJAtlas) that documents environmental struggles worldwide through a collaborative process between academics and activists. He will look both backward into the scholar and activist roots of the EJAtlas, and forward, by illustrating and discussing how the EJAtlas may enrich academic research, engaged scholarship and activism for more just and sustainable environmental futures.
