What Do We Mean When We Say “Justice”?: Environmental and Climate Decision-making at a Crossroads
How can the next generation of environmental and climate law and policy change the balance of power in the United States? While policymakers have begun to embrace procedural justice, public engagement alone falls short of shifting power to those most at risk. Social movements push us further, calling for systems change that creates new rights and remedies to address past harms and reallocate resources. This talk will explore what decision-making looks like when designed with the needs and voices of frontline communities at the center.
