Equity and the Environment: What’s the connection?: Berkeley Distinguished Lectures in Data Science

Lecture | April 24 | 4-5 p.m. | 190 Doe Library

Rachel Morello-Frosch

Berkeley Institute for Data Science

Featuring Professor Rachel Morello-Frosch, from Environmental Science, Policy, and Management Department and the School of Public Health

Emerging research indicates that more unequal societies have more polluted and degraded environments, perhaps also helping to explain why more unequal societies are often less healthy. A lack of “environmental justice”—that is, a situation in which people of color and the poor are disproportionately exposed to harmful pollution—is seen as potentially having broader impacts on overall pollution levels. This talk will show how data science is being leveraged to examine linkages between social equity and sustainability and the implications of this work for policy.
