Linking Our Work to the Environmental Justice Movement

Upcoming webinar:

The EJ PPN is hosting a workshop to learn about our shared history in the Environmental Justice movement and how it has helped shape our personal connection. By sharing our stories, work, and experiences we can further our commitment to equity, as well as inclusiveness in our practices. This interactive workshop draws from popular education approaches to share collective knowledge within the environmental justice field. Through participating in this interactive workshop, we can draw a deeper understanding of why and how each of us are connected to the environmental justice movement. Please join us on April 8th at 1:00 p.m. EDT.

Thursday, April 8 1:00-2:00 p.m. ET / 10:00-11:00 a.m. PT.

Help Build the ASLA Environmental Justice PPN’s Case Studies Database

One of the most frequently requested resources amongst landscape architects working on environmental justice is a database of precedent projects to reference. Since 2019, the EJ PPN has been collecting case studies in order to build a robust database of precedents. This database will share examples of how to integrate environmental justice into our field of practice.

You may submit your case study by completing this online form, which has a series of questions to collect information about engagement techniques, resources used, project outcomes, and lessons learned. We are interested in featuring projects that demonstrate how environmental justice principles can be applied to design processes and outcomes.

Examples of incorporating environmental justice into your projects may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Design processes that center on community voices
  • Projects that address disproportionate environmental burdens
  • Outcomes that honor the cultural integrity of all communities
