AT THE INTERSECTION BETWEEN CLIMATE, RACE, GENDER, SEXUALITY, ETC. IS SOCIALISM, WHICH IS THE COMMON DENOMINATOR: University of California system to launch ‘climate justice’ course
The 10-campus University of California system is set to debut a climate justice course that aims to address the “social, racial, and environmental injustices” of climate change.
A fall 2022 pilot class is slated to be focused at UC Merced ahead of a planned expansion to all 10 campuses by spring of next year, the system reported.
The curriculum is funded by a grant from the UC Office of the President and developed by Associate Professor and UC Presidential Chair Tracey Osborne, who founded the UC Center for Climate Justice over a year ago.
“I think what we’re doing now is unique and it’s something needed now more than ever, which is to focus on various dimensions of climate justice,” Osborne said in a news release.
Osborne did not respond to a request from The College Fix seeking comment.
The center, led by Osborne, includes six pillars of “climate justice”: just transition; social, racial and environmental justice; indigenous climate action; community resilience and adaptation; natural climate solutions; and climate education and engagement.
