Global Environmental Justice Conference at Yale

What will happen to the legal rights of the more than 200 million people who are likely to become climate refugees by 2050? How can we ensure that natural climate solutions are based on the input and knowledge of local Indigenous peoples? How do countries transition to renewable energy in equitable ways when many of their citizens lack access to existing energy sources?

These issues were at the center of a recent panel discussions at the Yale Center for Environmental Justice’s annual Global Environmental Justice Conference held at the Yale School of the Environment (YSE). The event brought together scholars, practitioners, and activists from around the world and across disciplines to discuss how scholarship, social justice, and environmental management can be effectively integrated.
