A note from the curators:
We are at a historical juncture where an increased need for simultaneously global and local humanistic awareness of environmental issues built from various fields of inquiry is more urgent than ever. We really are all in this together and the need to examine in depth the issues related to social, ecological, political and environmental justice is pressing. The Global Environmental Justice documentary project provides significant educational resources to do precisely that.
