Who Are We?

We are a number of environmentalists, rights activists, and professionals concerned with environmental issues in Egypt and how they impact the affected communities and their rights.
Our study of these issues goes beyond the discussion of environmental impacts to the examination of the concept of Environmental Justice and the deeper causes for its violation mostly rooted in economic policy and the decision making process - hence, our treatment of these issues will necessarily be political as well.
We stand behind all communities who mobilize to unapologetically demand and reclaim their rights in a safe, secure, and healthy environment and to manage its resources; and we aim to shed some light on the struggles of such communities.
