NYU SPS Energy, Climate Justice, and Sustainability Lab

Driving Positive Change for Future Generations

The NYU SPS ECJS Lab, housed within the NYU SPS Center for Global Affairs, aims to be a driver of positive change, advancing social justice in the areas of energy and food security, community resilience and wellbeing, urban sustainability, climate finance, and low carbon economic development. We do this through policy-relevant, evidence-based research and special events on climate change and its local and global impact on energy security, food insecurity, environmental justice, and community resilience and wellbeing, with an emphasis on a just energy transition, urban sustainability, and sustainable, low carbon economic development.

ECJS Lab aims to build research collaborations across the NYU academic community and with other external partners and academic institutions through major thematic research initiatives and grant writing, a global visiting scholars program, and practitioner collaborations, forums, and programming.

Our areas of focus are:

  • Climate Justice
  • The Energy Mid-Transition
  • Climate Resiliency and Sustainability
  • The Future of Natural Gas

Our work is grounded in the belief that addressing climate change in a just and informed manner will improve the quality of life for all people.
