The 8th UMD Symposium on Environmental Justice & Health Disparities (#UMDejsymposium2022) will convene community members, advocates, nonprofit organizers, policymakers, researchers, and students for an in-depth examination of ongoing environmental and climate justice issues affecting the DC-Maryland-Virginia (DMV) region and beyond. The symposium will take place virtually on August 11th and 12th, 2022, and in-person on Saturday, August 13th, 2022 at the University of Maryland Stamp Student Union.

Last year the Center for Community Engagement, Environmental Justice, and Health (CEEJH) presented an impactful symposium during the Pandemic with 40 dynamic sessions, more than 100 excellent speakers from around the county and the world. 1500 people registered including stakeholders from impacted communities worldwide, EJ groups, green groups, academia, government, policymakers, workers, and business/industry. This year, our Symposium’s theme is “Energy vs Power: Visions for the Future”, highlighting energy justice, climate change, power dynamics in environmental justice, and the use of technology in environmental justice work. Sessions with discussions on ongoing critical themes such as food sovereignty, healthcare access, community science, environmental justice mapping tools, climate justice, law, policy, and new, relevant topics in just and clean energy transitions will be “energetically” covered.
