This episode from Zoe Schutte in fall 2020’s ANTH 405, Public Anthropology and Global Environmental Challenges, class at Colorado State University examines water as a human right and how trends and lenses about water have changed over time. Schutte begins by defining environmental justice before delving into environmental injustices around water. Certain communities are disproportionally impacted by water-related injustices, as exemplified by the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, and Bolivia. Listen in for an in-depth examination of these problems and some solutions to these major issues.
