With a news release just out as part of the programme:

Experts from multiple fields argue that alternative approaches – beyond technological advances which do not challenge existing inequities – must be pursued in order to achieve transformational and effective change.

The book – “Environmental Justice in the Anthropocene: From (Un)just presents to just futures” – focusses on the important connections between fairness and equity in society, and concern for the environment and climate change.

These are two crucial aspects of focus of the G7 summit in Cornwall, which begins on Friday.

“This moment is an opportunity for leaders to reimagine and redefine our relationships with one another and between people, the environment, our energy and food systems, and climate change,” said lead editor Dr Stacia Ryder, of the University of Exeter.
