Environmental Justice and Sustainability

This working group was struck at the first University of Toronto General Assembly.

Minutes from 01/19/11 break-out session (pdf file).

Report-back to the first general assembly from break-out session:

Member: We adopted a preamble and action points by consensus. We want to work for a more sustainable campus; reject greenwashing; focus on larger global issues; address how U of T is providing intellectual justification for environmental destruction. Specific action items: public water, asbestos, compliance with public health/work place safety laws, ending corporate influence on intellectual work.

This working group was temporarily dissolved at the second general assembly as the majority of its members were already heavily involved with environmental justice projects in the Labour, Anti-Corportization, and International Solidarity working groups. Future assembly members are welcomed to revive the working group should the need arise.
