The Working Group on Environmental Justice has outlined the following objectives to guide its actions and initiatives:

  1. Promote Environmental Awareness: Increase understanding and consciousness about environmental issues and sustainability among students and educational communities worldwide. This involves disseminating information on the importance of ecological conservation and sustainable practices.
  2. Foster Sustainable Practices: Encourage the adoption of sustainable practices within student unions and educational institutions. This includes providing resources and guidance to help integrate sustainability into their operations, activities, and curricula.
  3. Facilitate Knowledge Sharing: Create platforms for sharing best practices, innovative solutions, and success stories related to sustainability in education. This aims to inspire and mobilize student organizations and educational institutions to take meaningful environmental actions.
  4. Conduct Research and Gather Data: Undertake research initiatives, such as global surveys, to gather insights into the attitudes, practices, and needs of student organizations regarding sustainability. This data will inform the development of targeted strategies and resources to support their environmental efforts.
  5. Engage in Policy Advocacy: Advocate for policies at local, national, and international levels that support environmental justice, sustainability in education, and the inclusion of student voices in climate-related decision-making processes.
  6. Build a Global Network: Establish a global network of student leaders, environmental activists, and sustainability professionals. This community will collaborate on projects, share knowledge, and support each other in mutual goals of promoting environmental justice and sustainability.
  7. Support Global Environmental Initiatives: Participate in and contribute to international environmental initiatives and discussions, such as the Conference of Parties (COP) meetings, to represent the interests and perspectives of the global student community.

Through these objectives, the GSF Working Group on Environmental Justice aims to create a significant impact on how educational institutions and student organizations contribute to a more sustainable and just world.
