The Utah Society for Envir Ed Environmental Justice
The goal of this project is to create a sustainable structure for serving community needs by utilizing students in University of Utah Environmental Justice courses to respond to expressed needs in areas related to air and water quality, toxic substances, and waste management. The goal will be accomplished through the following actions: (1) providing a greater understanding of environmental justice by creating, piloting, and disseminating an environmental justice simulation program modeled after the nationally recognized Missouri Poverty Action Simulation; (2) engaging University of Utah graduate students in the analysis of previously conducted Rose Park needs assessments that will shape service learning projects; (3) engaging undergraduate students in service learning opportunities based on the needs assessment analysis; (4) ensuring the longevity of serving community needs through by creating lasting partnerships between local service providers and students. Rose Park neighborhood in Salt Lake City is community that this project discusses. This project will use existing needs assessment information to work with community members and organizations to address environmental issues.
