Everyone is welcome to apply - community advocates, college students/faculty/staff, government officials and any other group or person motivated to acquire interpersonal skills and community organizational tools to identify environmental challenges and achieve sustainable, environmental improvement goals.
This fourth class of the EJ Academy is a three-day, on-site training (March 28 – 30, 2019) followed by homework assignments and online sessions to be completed within one month. After completing the Academy, participants will attend a capstone event on May 10, 2019, where they will present a project which draws upon tools/skills learned through the Academy. March sessions will be held at AMSC’s Easley Pavilion, 1630 Metropolitan Parkway, S.W. Atlanta, GA 30310.
The Environmental Justice Academy’s co-sponsors are Atlanta Metropolitan State College, the Center for Sustainable Communities, RCE Greater Atlanta and the US Environmental Protection Agency Region 4.
