The Latinxs & the Environment initiative began at UC Berkeley nearly 3 years ago as an effort to establish a comprehensive program that will encourage the expansion of knowledge and research on Latinxs and the environment.
This effort includes partnerships in the U.S and abroad with UC Berkeley, policymakers, community based organizations, and the academic community.
Latinx & the Environment at UCR is a UC Office of the President Hispanic-Serving Institution Doctoral Diversity Initiative (UC-HSI DDI).
UC Global Health Institute
The UC Global Health Institute (UCGHI) is a UC-wide initiative that promotes global health research, education, and collaboration to advance the University's global health agenda. Additionally, they recognize emerging fields such as Planetary Health that recognize that a balance is needed among the global systems of land, air, water, and life.
UC Berkeley Latinxs & The Environment
Latinxs & The Environment was initiated by UC Berkeley as a means to bridge the work & research Latinxs are doing with the environment. They seek to create a bridge between policy and research within the area of environmentalism.
