This is the final of three blog posts that feature virtual book displays created by library student workers. The blog editors would like to thank all of the students who participated for the planning, research, and creativity that went into these projects!
Environmental Justice & History
By Dakota Wolf & Mariela Breton
Environmental Justice refers to those cultural norms and values, rules, regulations, behaviors, policies, and decisions to support sustainability, where all people can hold with confidence that their community and natural environment is safe and productive.–GreenAction.org
Climate change and the destruction of the natural world are among the biggest problems facing humanity today. In this display, you will find books about the history of the environmentalist movement, environmental issues ranging from climate crimes to pollution, and activism.
