Note: This is an online offering that takes place via Zoom. Please ensure that you have access to an internet capable device.This course will delve into the intersection of climate change and social justice, domestically and internationally. How do climate change and environmental policies aimed at mitigating it affect different people around the globe and within societies? We will review the notion of differential risks and the various socio-economic vulnerabilities that are exacerbated by climate change, as well as the impact of climate action on different populations and regions from the local to the global. As the social justice movement has garnered momentum around the world and climate change has pressed governments to act, this course looks at how both can and should be combined for sustainability. We will examine different concepts supporting this reflection and how they came about, as well as key case studies that have shaped this field. Participants will be invited to share experiences and discuss ideas in this interactive session.
