Equity and Sustainability Transitions summer school Featured

Do you wonder whether discussions on sustainability transitions include discussions on fairness? Can different communities and categories of people respond in the same way to what is required for sustainability transitions? For example, is public transport available for those living in less off areas? Who can afford to shop for quality nutritious food? What is meant by climate justice? Are marginalised people and those who are often ‘left behind’ included in discussions on sustainability transitions or represented in some way at the policy table? How can we measure how different communities' area affected in different ways by the enforcement of environmental laws, regulations, and policies? Interested? Then join us in this postgraduate interdisciplinary summer school, where we will unpack equity and sustainability transitions.
