Your session chairs
Torsten Krause and Vasna Ramasar

This session on Climate Justice and Welfare Change addresses the consequences of climate change for equity and fairness as well as the pathways to a more sustainable and just future. Climate concepts and institutions are interrogated in relation to their implications for justice at different scales. The session also offers space for a discussion of pathways towards climate justice considering what energy scenarios, just transitions and sustainable welfare can and should include. We welcome symposium participants to join us in these deliberations
