What is the GEJP?

The Global Environmental Justice Project at UCSB is a force for supporting, encouraging, and launching a range of efforts on and off-campus, locally and globally that link research, teaching, service, and action for environmental justice. Environmental justice is the integration of social justice and human rights with efforts to secure ecological sustainability. The GEJP supports faculty, students, staff, entrepreneurs, artists, film makers, EJ advocates, and community leaders in their efforts to explore new ideas, questions, and possibilities for studying, learning about, communicating, and promoting environmental justice.
