EJOLT is a global research project bringing science and society together to catalogue and analyze ecological distribution conflicts and confront environmental injustice.
The EJOLT project is a research effort led by over 20 universities and environmental justice organizations. It encompasses four thematic pillars: nuclear energy, oil and gas extraction conflicts and climate injustices, biomass and land conflicts; and mining and ship dismantling [and e-waste] conflicts. The work of these pillars is supported by five crosscutting axes of intervention, which include the building up of a Map of Environmental Conflicts.The other four crosscutting axes are environmental health and risk assessment, liabilities and valuation, law and institutions and finally, consumption, ecological unequal exchange and ecological debt. Listed below are two of the coolest results from this project:
This Atlas collects stories from around the world of communities struggling for environmental justice. It attempts to serve as a virtual space for those working on Environmental Justice issues to get information, find other groups working on related issues, and increase the visibility of environmental conflicts.
It consists of 16 lectures, with an end of course assignment and successful participants receive a certificate of completion.
