Project Theme: Environmental Justice, Environmental Education
Project Sponsor: Students of Color Environmental Collective (SCEC) RSO
Environmental Justice at Cal has always been advanced by students before being adopted by the institution. Circularity Community aims to increase student power and give them a strong platform to share their knowledge and narratives. It serves three distinct purposes:
One: to create a mobile community hub for environmental justice education and organizing.
Two: to curate a platform for marginalized students to share personal environmental stories in order to diversify Cal’s greater environmental narrative.
Three: to share resources and create opportunities for wellness and reflection to battle eco-anxiety and burnout prevalent within Berkeley’s environmental community.
Project Goals: To create both online and physical resources for students to better understand and take action on environmental justice issues. These resources will mainly be in the format of a community-based app, a website curated by UC Berkeley students, and resource guides with themed challenges and reflections.
Project Leaders: Kiana Kazemi and Sarah Naameh
