Climate Conversations: Environmental Justice

April 26 , 12:30 am 1:45 pm EDT

Join us for a discussion exploring the role of environmental justice and what a just transition means.

Environmental justice and a just transition are critical to tackling the climate crisis and create a more equitable world for all. Yet awareness of environmental justice is uneven and the concept applies differently in different circumstances. Join the National Academies and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences for a discussion about reconciling different understandings of environmental justice, the importance of community engagement in a just transition, and how centering environmental justice can accelerate implementation of climate-friendly policies.

Closed captioning will be provided. The conversation will include questions from the audience and will be recorded and available to view on the page after the event.
