Climates of Inequality: Special Community Preview
Hahne & Co Building Atrium
54 Halsey Street
October 03, 2019
5:30 pm—8:00 pm

Why does the past matter for the future of climate change? The legacies of environmental justice may hold the key to confronting the climate crisis.
Climates of Inequality is a multi-media installation created by Rutgers University-Newark students, collaborating with the Ironbound Community Corporation — together with over 500 students, educators, and environmental justice advocates in more than 20 cities.
Through immersive virtual reality, moving testimony, and historical imagery, communities share sites of climate crisis from Newark to New Orleans. Follow local teams as they peel back the layers of history that created them. Then share your own memories on interactive maps and “vote” on local environmental policy.

After launching in Newark, this exhibit will travel to the over 20 communities that created it — carrying the stories of Newark to each place in a memory movement to shape just climate solutions.

Join us for this preview event to acknowledge the project’s creators and explore how this multi-media installation can support student learning and public participation in environmental and climate justice.
