UNITED FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE
Ahead of the 2019 climate summit in New York in September 2019 FEPS together with its partners presented the outcome and guiding proposals of the steering committee on this topic.
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 19 - SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 21 2019
The climate emergency is becoming clearer than ever, yet environmental injustice still stems from social and economic inequalities within our societies. Based on defending social rights, fighting inequalities and caring for our common environment and well-being, progressive values can help provide the answers to this challenge.
Therefore, in light of the extraordinary UN Climate Summit that took place in New York in September 2019, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and its partners put together a high-level group of experts to join a dialogue on formulating a new progressive vision on climate justice.
FEPS steering committee on Climate Justice was chaired by Teresa Ribera, Spanish Minister for the ecological transition, and brought together expert policy advisers, political representatives, civil society activists, academics and other key stakeholders in the climate justice debate.
