Just Transitions Policy Lab

Quarter-long course
Environmental Sustainability
Building off the work of the Stanford Coalition for Planning an Equitable 2035 (SCoPE), the just transitions policy lab will address transportation justice, housing justice, and labor equity concerns that have been identified by neighboring communities to Stanford and our service workers as part of local land use planning and policy processes. Building on the success of earlier housing justice policy lab initiatives, this course will support ongoing policy engagement in local land use planning process, including housing and transportation justice issues. Key concepts addressed will include environmental justice (EJ) and just transitions frameworks, as well as building awareness of the Bay Area housing crisis. The course will culminate in class projects that will involve working with community partners to address information gaps on worker experiences and housing and transportation needs. Sessions will prioritize 1) foundational concepts in environmental justice 2) current issues in our community related to housing, transportation, and labor equity, 2) peer learning through collective engagement in readings and project planning, 4) community connections related to SCoPE initiatives that deepen existing relationships, and 5) policy analysis related to local land use planning processes. The teaching team will be accepting brief student applications for course participation prior to Winter quarter. To apply for this course, please fill out this google form: Due December 8 at 11:59pm. Cardinal Course certified by the Haas Center for Public Service.
