Today, we're featuring the Sustainable Urban Design Academy (SUDA) at Castlemont High School in Oakland, CA, as part of the Oakland Unified School District.

Founded in 2010, SUDA is mentoring program that pairs high school students with caring adults who assist them in bettering their grades and exploring higher education and career options. One of those options is their food justice program, where they explore eco-apartheid through sustainable urban design with equity, environment and economy themes.
