TOPIC

Environmental Exploitation

The environmental exploitation of ecosystems by humans deeply affects our food, health, air and water quality, plant and animal diversity, and much more. Low-income and impoverished communities and communities of color are especially hard-hit while the global trend strains natural resources as wealthy communities continue to demand a higher standard of living. This has led to some irreversible loss and destruction of our natural resources, such as trees, fossil fuels, sand, and water, calling for a closer look at sustainability, conservation, environmental education and aid, and power and system shifts. We’ve started gathering valuable information on this topic, but haven’t yet curated the findings.
