Catherine, thanks so much for your insights. All the best from Germany to you all!
What is Catherine’s org’s website? I missed it.
Great question — thank you, Annie!
Please write your questions in the chat!

Catherine— can you talk more about how you envision collaborating with water treatment engineers who develop new technologies? What are the modes through which engineers can contribute, and also how engineers can learn/prepare to engage with organizations like CREEJ?
Catherine, Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts. I have a couple of questions. 1) What type of environmental changes you see that makes you worrisome for the future generation? 2) What are your thoughts on - What needs to be done to boost environmental health?
FYI, WEJAC is the White House Environmental Justice Advisory Council https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefing-room/statements-releases/2021/03/29/white-house-announces-environmental-justice-advisory-council-members/

How can we get people from wealthier communities to think more critically about climate change?
Thank you so much, Catherine, so inspiring. Your sentence “the problem is when corporations are treated like people, and people treated like things” is so true. Do you think that the analogy can be extended to “treating nature/environment as exploitable resource?”. Furthermore, re community engagement and scientists failing in doing so. Do you think that part of the issue may be associated with the Cartesian dichotomy between object and subject?
Stanford is starting a new school of sustainability. In the deliberative stage. How would you advise them to engage the community?
Is there any leverage of the White House advisory council to include Environmental justice into environmental science high school curriculum / AP curriculum ?
