Providing a retrospective look at environmental justice scholarship and activism and the prospects and themes for current and future work in the field.

In association with Sydney Social Sciences and Humanities Advanced Research Centre (SSSHARC) and the School of Social and Political Sciences, University of Sydney. 

Sydney Environment Institute at the University of Sydney, celebrates the 20-year anniversary of the original Environment Justice conference. The 2017 conference, like the inaugural event hosted by University of Melbourne, will have interdisciplinary focus bringing together scholars and activists addressing Environmental Justice in both human communities and nonhuman nature.

This year’s event looks retrospectively at environmental justice scholarship and activism, while also looking forward towards the prospects and themes for current and future work in the field. What have we learned? What are the key challenges, trends, and directions for environmental justice theories, movements and campaigns, and what impact will this have on institutions and politics?
