Environmental Roundtables are facilitated discussions of important environmental issues, hosted by the Loyola University Environment Program. Facilitators include Environment Program Students, Faculty and guest hosts.

This roundtable is an opportunity for the Loyola community to reflect upon Josh Fox's visit Feb. 9-10th, and to discuss the work that needs to be done now to address our understanding, analyzing, and responding to local, national, and global environmental challenges. The spirited discussions we had with him during his Loyola visit provided inspiration and challenged our views of the nature of environmental crises and the actions we should take. Faculty and students from the Environment Program will initiate our roundtable discussion by providing just a few "take home questions" in short 2-3 minute comments to stimulate our group discussion.

Loyola University’s Interdisciplinary Environment program draws upon Loyola’s commitment to social justice and the “natural laboratory” that is New Orleans, our proximity to coastal wetlands, and a city that has responded with resilience to natural and human challenges for nearly 300 years. Our 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.
