Environmental Justice and Innovation
How do we achieve long-term sustainability, resiliency, and ecological and global justice while promoting environmental preservation? Emerging professionals and action-oriented leaders come together in this master's program to share knowledge, foster
debate, and facilitate collaboration. We see community as central to our commitment to social justice and environmental concerns. In seeking systemic responses to the global crisis of inequality and climate change, we center on grassroots, frontline
community, and Indigenous approaches.

At The New School, learning happens both in and outside of the classroom. New York City is our learning laboratory and home to many established and emerging environmental organizations with which we partner to address local and global environmental challenges.
Students also benefit from resources and initiatives within the university, including the Tishman Environment and Design Center – a space for bold design, policy, and social justice approaches to the
environment – as well as action-based collectives of current students and alumni working to create a more sustainable, equitable, and just climate future.
Graduates of the Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management program emerge as thoughtful, innovative practitioners with the analytical skills and practical tools needed to advance environmental, climate, and social justice for a more sustainable
world. Our alumni are making a difference in government, nonprofits, advocacy and social change organizations, and policy and research institutes, as well as the private sector. They hold senior roles in organizations including the United Nations
Development Programme, the City of Oakland, Con Edison, and the Hunger Project.
