Low carbon communities and social justice

Harriet Bulkeley, Sara Fuller

Research output: Book/ReportOther report


A shift from an emphasis on individual action to community responses has been portrayed as one that will enable a more just response to climate change. Policy and actions will be more inclusive, responsibilities for action may be shared, and the risks and benefits of the low carbon transition more evenly distributed, so the argument goes. But are justice principles really becoming embedded within low carbon communities and can such community-based approaches to climate change live up to expectations?
