Title: Home Ecology: The Science of Environmental Justice
Lead Author: Walsh, Elizabeth A
Abstract: In the United States, where health disparities between socioeconomic groups are increasing and low-income communities of color experience a disproportionate share of environmental burdens, we as a society must contend with important questions of environmental justice. How can we create a world in which everyone and their grandkids  and their grandkids, etc  gets to live, learn, work, play and worship in a healthy environment that enables them to reach their full human potential and self-expression? How can home environments be sites of generation of love, creativity and resilience? This is a tremendous challenge that tends to be under-investigated by the scientific community  especially the social sciences  at the household scale. This general challenge is strongly reflected in two more specific ones: childhood health disparities with complex etiologies including significant environmental health factors, and disparities in access to affordable, healthy, and green housing. Both of these problems have the potential to be addressed through transdsciplinary action research in Home Ecology.
