Location: Nunemaker Auditorium, 3rd Floor, Monroe Hall

Loyola University New Orleans welcomes environmental activist and Emmy award-winning director Josh Fox to lead a discussion on the fight to improve environmental justice at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 10, 2017, in Nunemaker Auditorium, 3rd Floor, Monroe Hall, 6363 St. Charles Ave. The event is free and open to the public. There is free parking in the west road parking garage. 

The discussion will explore a variety of topics from what kind of policy is expected under the new presidential administration to ways in which the community can become better environmental advocates. Fox will guide attendees through these topics and answer questions about his films and the fight to improve environmental policy in this new era.

“As we exit 2016 as the hottest year on record, it becomes more vital than ever to engage in the topic of environmental justice,” said Dr. Craig Hood, Director of the Environment Program at Loyola. “New Orleans and the entire Gulf Coast is directly threatened by the impacts of climate change and the societal policies that are and are not supported.   All Environmental challenges are interdisciplinary in nature, they touch and have feedbacks on the physical, ecological, social, political and cultural fabric of every community.   Loyola University New Orleans is honored to host Josh Fox, a visionary artist who stands at the forefront of this critical cause, leading our community in this discussion.”

Fox visits Loyola at the invitation of the university’s Interdisciplinary Environment program. Drawing on Loyola’s commitment to social justice and the “natural laboratory” that is New Orleans, our proximity to coastal wetlands, this collaborative learning program offers four undergraduate majors and a minor: Environmental Science, Environmental Science (Teaching Certification), Environmental Studies (Humanities), Environmental Studies (Social Sciences), and a minor in Environmental Studies.
