In spring 2017, CSP worked with the AP Environmental Science classes at Hastings High School in Hastings on Hudson, New York. The students interviewed residents impacted by or involved in the response to Hurricane Sandy. Since Hastings on Hudson experienced some of the effects of Sandy, these conversations were an opportunity for the students to learn how this devastating storm impacted other nearby communities, and how climate change can cause and exacerbate environmental injustice.
