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 justicethat is, a situation in which people of color and the poor are disproportionately exposed to harmful pollutionis 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.
