Global Climate Justice

Climate change is the greatest threat to social justice, human rights, and progress around the world. The New Directions in Environmental Law Conference, which will take place on March 1-2, 2019, will explore existing challenges and legal and policy solutions to the crisis, placing climate justice at the center of the discussion.

The conference will include a mixture of panels, breakout groups, and keynote addresses, engaging legal and environmental practitioners and environmental justice leaders. Some of the cross-cutting themes include domestic and international climate change litigation, transnational indigenous environmental movements, climate-induced displacement, resilient communities, and the international climate change regime.
