GreenGov Council & Penn State Sustainability Institute’s Sustainability Webinar Series 2
May 14, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm EDT
Hidden Burdens: Using Mapping to Advance PA’s Environmental Justice
Peter Buck, Academic Programs Manager, Penn State Sustainability Institute; Nyla Holland and Nebraska Hernandez, Environmental Justice Interns, will review their new mapping tool that allows researchers and governments to examine by census tract environmental and health factors in Pennsylvania connected to questions of environmental justice. They will show how the tool can be used to drive future policy conversations to address disproportionate environmental burdens endured by communities of color and low-income communities.
The GreenGov Council and Penn State’s Sustainability Institute are co-hosting our second monthly webinar series on various sustainability topics. All who are interested in expanding their knowledge of sustainability initiatives are invited to participate! Our goal is to make this series a successful venture to support the commonwealth’s progress toward sustainability goals set forth in the Governor’s Executive Order 2019-01. To that end, please forward this invitation along to all those who may be interested.
