Topics of the workshops will include the following: environmental justice, sustainability across curriculum, energy and environment, sustainability management, sustainable development, environmental policy, transportation equity, smart growth, climate justice, food justice, energy justice, disasters, urban forestry and sustainability, built environment (e.g. parks and green space) and health, and social determinants of health.
