What would a different conversation aboutthe relationship betweenrace, place, and the environment in Aboriginal and African Nova Scotian communities look like?  

How can we engage in a more inclusive conversation about the social justice dimensions of the environment? How can we best acknowledge the links between environmental racism, climate change, climate justice, justice-based transition to a fossil-free economy, community-based aspects of renewable energy, the built environment, planning policies, energy policy and urban justice? 

What can Nova Scotian, Canadian and American community members, professors, researchers, students, policymakers, and NGO professionals learn from one another about using research, policy, and community activism to address the social, economic and health impacts of the relationship between race, placeand the environment in Indigenous and Black communities? 

What are the possible public health advocacy responses to existing or proposed industrial projects and other environmental hazards near Indigenous and Black communities? 

Please join Dalhousie’s Environmental Noxiousness, Racial Inequities & Community Health (ENRICH) project and the Healthy Populations Institute (HPI) on Thursday evening 26 October and all day Friday 27 October at the Halifax Central Library for a free public and academic symposium hosted by Charla Williams.

We will engage in a solution-based, cross-cultural conversation about some of the most salient issues of our times and their impacts on our most vulnerable communities who are all too often left out of the conversation. 

Organized and Hosted by The ENRICH Project & The Healthy Populations Institute, Dalhousie University

The Enrich Project & Healthy Populations Institute (HPI)

The ENRICH Project is a collaborative community-based project investigating the cause and effects of toxic industries situated near Mi’kmaq and African Nova Scotian communities.


HPI is a Senate-approved research Institute at Dalhousie University. Through excellence in research, capacity building, and knowledge translation, HPI has been a leader in health promotion research in Atlantic Canada and beyond.HPI has recently undergone a renewal process: reflecting on our past, visioning our future, and developing a plan for continued success. As part of this renewal we have re-committed ourselves to policy and program-focused research, but also recognize the need to highlight more explicitly our ‘upstream research’, that is research which addresses the fundamental causes of unhealthy lives and communities.
