Earth System at Risk

Challenging Environmental (In)Justice

The stream will explore the concept of ‘environmental justice’ and reveal why, alongside the climate crisis, it is one of the most pressing issues of our time. Contributions are invited for these three main areas: 1) the calls for environmental equity and justice within the broader framework of environmental sustainability and climate justice; 2) how ecological hazards and climate disasters have the harshest impacts on people of colour, native tribes and those on low incomes; 3) how the search for a just and sustainable environment has merged civil rights and environmentalism.​

Stream organisers: Giusy Pappalardo, Elisa Privitera, and Francesca Rosignoli.
