EJOLT is a global research project bringing science and society together to catalogue and analyse ecological distribution conflicts and confront environmental injustice. It is comprised of civil society groups involved in conflicts over resource extraction or waste disposal, which increase as the world economy uses more materials and energy. EJOLT seeks to provide a voice to those groups who suffer from the costs of development strategies and lack the political power to resist displacement, dispossession or exposure to environmental health risks. They thereby practice "environmentalism of the poor".
