The Indigenous Environmental Justice (IEJ) research and outreach project aims to develop a distinctive EJ framework that is informed by Indigenous knowledge systems, laws, concepts of justice and the lived experiences of Indigenous peoples. It serves as a resource for community members, students, activists and scholars towards contributing to the development of the EJ framework. It aims to: support communities fighting an environmental injustice; provide resources to teachers and schools that are interested in educating their students about the concept of Indigenous environmental justice, and; continually create opportunities for inclusive dialogue on how to move toward greater justice.
