New Roots Justice & Sustainability Mural
Human society and the environment are intrinsically linked with regards to health and justice. Many of our current social and economic systems rely heavily on forms of resource extraction that are unsustainable and that cause great environmental harm. The environmental impacts of these systems are not evenly distributed across society or even around the globe, raising questions about environmental justice. One way to address these concerns is to build awareness of how these systems function and to develop some consciousness about our own role in them. Through public art we can share these thoughts with the wider populace and possibly develop a greater general consciousness about these issues. We hope that this will, in turn, lead people to be part of building a better future.
