Bermuda College and Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce [BEST] announced their March Eco Lunch & Learn presentation on Thursday, March 31st.
A spokesperson said, “This presentation will be delivered by Bermuda College students who have been investigating Environmental Justice and whether or not this is a topic of concern for our local community.
“They will be sharing data gathered from a public survey that focuses on the community’s perception of access to clean drinking water, affordable energy and food security. Students will also reflect on global examples of the injustices experienced by vulnerable communities in each of these areas.”
Amy Harvey, the Earth and Environmental Science lecturer at the Bermuda College explained, ‘Most people understand and know about the social justice movement but have they heard of environmental justice movement? Do they understand that these two movements are intricately linked? Environmental Justice seeks for all members of our communities to have fair and equal access to a good quality of life within an environment that is clean and functioning, providing the necessary ecosystem services for humans to exist.
