ELS is hosting a national conference on Environmental Justice March 28-29, 2014!

The Harvard Law School Environmental Law Society is pleased to host the annual National Association of Environmental Law Societies Conference on March 28–29, 2014. In recognition of the 20th anniversary of President Clinton’s Executive Order on Environmental Justice, the theme will be “Environmental Justice: Where Are We Now?” The conference will focus on three themes:

  • Progress on the goals of environmental justice,
  • The social justice aspects of today’s national and international environmental movements, and
  • Strategies to ensure that environmental justice is a priority in future environmental work.

The conference will provide a unique opportunity for students to engage with one another and with leading experts in an exciting, inter-disciplinary field. The multi-faceted nature of environmental justice will provide a springboard for discussing climate change, water quality, food policy, and other pressing environmental challenges. Ensuring fair treatment under environmental law and policies for members of all communities is an integral part of the struggle to improve and maintain our environment. We hope that you will join us for the 2014 NAELS conference to reflect upon and move forward with this pressing topic!
