How We Do It
Science to Empower (s2e) is an environmental justice (EJ) initiative that facilitates applied research and connection to support the defense of humans and nature rights. Our goal is to co-create rigorous EJ research that is accessible and leveraged for action and policy making.
We promote action for socio-ecological transformation by focusing on justice and equity within environmental sustainability. We support and uplift those working to advance EJ by being a partner who leverages innovative research for real-world EJ needs, identifying scientific needs and scientists who could fulfill them.
We believe in the power of focusing on communities that bear a disproportionate share of environmental burdens.
Our work is ethical and coherent.
We pursue research that directly benefits the communities we study.
Our ultimate goal is to support the socio-ecological
transformation of communities and the environment.
