Environmental Justice! How can we create environments that are healthy for everyone? is a freely available community research guide developed by the Smithsonian Science Education Center (SSEC) in partnership with the InterAcademy Partnership as part of the Smithsonian Science for Global Goals project.

The Environmental Justice! guide helps young people learn more about the concerns of their community in order to communicate accurate, helpful, and trusted information about environmental justice.

Environmental Justice! features 8 tasks that incorporate investigations and hands-on science to help students discover, understand, and take action. Students learn about how they interact with their environment; research environmental justice throughout history; learn about a specific environmental issue in their area and the causes of this problem; examine how different environments can make people more or less healthy; discover the themes of injustices; learn more to understand some innovative solutions to environmental problems; and develop an action plan for their communities.
