OID - Fracking Los Angeles: The L.A. Archdiocese Case

  • Aviation Room, Hoch-Shanahan Dining Commons 301 Platt Boulevard Claremont, CA, 91711 United States (map)

The Hixon Center for Sustainable Environmental Design has joined forces with Sumi Pendakur from the Office of Institutional Diversity and Annenberg Leadership Professor Werner Zorman to offer a three-part workshop series titled, “What Would You Do?” The series will focus on environmental ethics, justice and leadership for the spring semester.

Building on the highly successful seminar on the Flint Water Crisis delivered by Pendakur and Professor Lelia Hawkins (Chemistry), the new series will give participants to engage with real-life cases that have deep ethical and social justice implications, while simultaneously putting themselves at the heart of the decision-making process. The goal of these workshops is to critically examine and untangle the complex roles, motivations and responsibilities of involved stakeholders and to nurture the skills necessary to achieve more equitable and comprehensive resolutions.

This first event will be led by Professor Tanja Srebotnjak, Director of the Hixon Center, and will focus on fracking in Los Angeles.
