All around the world, people are faced with conflicts of environmental justice and are affected by social, economic, and political influence. This lesson introduces students to the concept of environmental justice and civic engagement with an interactive role-play activity.

Students will learn to communicate with one another to devise an equitable plan for the sake of all stakeholders involved and consider the range of environmental impacts that community level decisions can have. Plus, teachers will receive a Program Resource Packet featuring printable worksheets, activities and resources.

Please note that there is required teacher-led student prep work prior to this program. Be sure to factor in extra time when booking. Thank you!
