Date of Interview
The interviewee stresses the need to accurately identify potential and existing environmental risks, and to then think in terms of how best to resolve issues in a fair and equitable manner. She addresses the globalizing framework of environmental degradation and how this has contributed to worldwide problems of injustice, stressing the need for multi-state collaboration and political mobilization as a means of addressing issues at hand. There is also a great deal of discussion concerning food justice and people having access to high quality, nutritious food. While many of the interviewee’s responses are anthropocentric, she does touch upon the need to consider non-human life and natural systems when evaluating the topic of environmental justice. There is also discussion on the need to find common ground with environmentalists and eco-centric groups.
