What would a different conversation about the relationship between race, place, and the environment in Indigenous and Black communities look like? How can we engage in a more inclusive conversation about the social justice dimensions of the environment? 

How can we best acknowledge the links between environmental racism, climate change, climate justice, justice-based transition to a fossil-free economy, community-based aspects of renewable energy,  energy policy, the built environment, urban planning, planning policies, gentrification, and urban justice?

What can Nova Scotian, Canadian and American community members, professors, researchers, students, policymakers, environmental organizations and activists, and NGO professionals learn from one another about using research, policy, and community activism to address the social, economic and health impacts of the relationship between race, place and the environment in Indigenous and Black communities?
