In light of the international nature of the climate crisis, an inclusive account of climate justice that does right by emerging economies is imperative. This webinar arises from the ‘Climate mainstreaming: Breaking down the silos’ series, intended to highlight the multidisciplinary approach required to fully understand the consequences of the climatic crisis we are living in.

This policy breakfast is dedicated to the discussion of the findings of the ‘Climate justice principles‘ policy brief published on 10 February 2023. The co-author, Professor Carl Knight, will present the outcomes of his policy brief and join a discussion on the intersection point between ‘Climate justice principles’ and other policy fields.

After reviewing principles of climate justice which can help allocate the costs and benefits of climate policy, the policy brief suggested a luck-prioritarian account of climate justice as the most normatively plausible way to ensure social inclusivity and furtherance of the general well-being of the least well-off, while factoring in the responsibility of individuals.

Such an account of climate justice provides a plausible avenue for responding to the “triple injustice” outlined in the United for Climate Justice declaration authored by FEPS and partners under the chairpersonship of Teresa Ribera, Minister for the Ecological Transition in Spain. Indeed, it provides an international framework of justice, as well as an intra-national framework for individual-level and intergenerational climate justice.

Among the speakers:

  • Prof. Carl Knight, Senior lecturer in Political Theory at the University of Glasgow and co-author of the ‘Climate Justice Principles’ policy brief
  • Luc Bas, Vice-Chair, IUCN CEESP
  • Delara Burkhardt, MEP, S&D group, ENVI. *
  • Namita Kambli, Research Manager, E3G.

Moderation by Kevin Le Merle, Climate policy analyst, FEPS.

The discussion fostered within this webinar, organised by FEPS and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, should help expand upon these conclusions with the inclusion of additional voices from both the speakers and the public. The normative principles outlined in the related policy brief provide a starting point for mainstreaming climate justice in other policy fields, such as health, gender and digital, where a move away from siloed policymaking is proving urgent.
