Philadelphia Area Environmental Justice Curriculum Hub

The Philadelphia Area Environmental Justice Curriculum Hub is a living archive of resources for connecting middle school, high school, and college students with sites of environmental justice advocacy in and around Philadelphia. The Hub welcomes students, advocates, educators, and artists to contribute any curricular materials, writing, film, interviews, oral histories, and art in the pursuit of racial and environmental justice in the Philadelphia area.

The Hub’s organizers, Davy Knittle and Andrew Niess, are current graduate fellows at the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities (PPEH) interested in gathering materials for environmental justice education and curating them in a format accessible to teachers. The Hub extends PPEH’s commitment to public engagement in and with environmental justice communities and concerns.
