Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

The field of Environmental Justice has highlighted the intersections between race, ethnicity, class, and environmental degradation, demonstrating the disproportionate burden that certain sectors of our society bear in terms of pollution, food deserts, unwanted land uses, and lack of green and open space. Institutions of higher learning can and should foster inclusive sustainability among their students, exploring issues of white privilege and the hegemony of mainstream environmentalism.
