Environmental Governance and Justice


We build on interdisciplinary efforts to find and implement best-practices for a sustainable future.

We specialize in studying green infrastructure, and the development of sustainable built environments. We focus on engaging local communities—especially women, Indigenous populations, and other underrepresented minorities to create equitable and connected regions. Our efforts—which are concentrated in low-income neighborhoods with poor access to recreation, and green spaces—promote mental health.A current initiative is analyzing the impact of COVID-19 on Indigenous data sovereignty and governance.
