Environmental Impact Analysis


Tendai Chitewere is broadly interested in the intersection of environmentalism, community, and justice. Specifically, she focuses on individual, neighborhood, and government responses to social and environmental degradation by creating sustainable ways to engage with each other and the environment. Building on her research on ecological cohousing communities, and using political ecology to examine the relationship between being green and being just, her current research is focused on urban agriculture in the San Francisco Bay Area and the role of urban gardening and K-16 education. She is also interested in the consumption of green commodities as a means to affect environmental change and creating green lifestyles. She has a strong interest in qualitative and quantitative research design that supports participatory community-based research.
