Moderated by Emily Barritt, King’s College London
Environmental justice is complex, not just because justice is a profoundly complex idea, but because when speaking about the environmental a host of diverse and potentially conflicting considerations are engaged. Inequalities manifest in terms of gender, race, class, geography, generation and species, and deciding how to balance these numerous considerations is hard. In this panel, speakers will introduce and interrogate these dimensions of environmental justice, examining how they interact and conflict with each other.
