Discussion Bulletin – Special Edition on Environmental Justice
No 25 September 2016
A long and proud story of struggle for environment and justice
The SEARCH Foundation Environmental Justice Working Group has produced a Special Edition of the Discussion Bulletin which you may download here.
Authorities as varied as Naomi Klein, Nicholas Stern and Pope Francis have stressed that there is no more urgent political struggle facing the world than the increasingly severe consequences of global warming and the challenges of environmental and climate justice. This special edition Bulletin addresses those challenges and describes what we can learn from some successful recent campaigns about building powerful social movements that win. The contributors to the Bulletin, moreover, are leading environmental justice activists and pre-eminent thinkers from Australia and overseas, including members of the SEARCH Foundation and our allies.
This SEARCH Foundation special edition will therefore be of significant interest not only to our members, but to the environmental and climate justice movement as a whole. The Bulletin is arranged around themes which, along with the authors, are:
- Environmental Justice – what is it and is it a good frame for action?: Geoff Evans (p.2), Ariel Salleh (p.6), Bob Makinson (p.8), James Goodman (p.11).
- Climate Change and Energy Politics: Peter Colley (p.12), Sean Sweeney (p.14).
- Social Movement Building – what works?: Drew Hutton (p.15), Felicity Wade (p.16), Naomi Hogan (p.17), Amy Gordon (p.19), Cam Walker (p.21), David McKnight (p.23), James Whelan (p.25), Joel Dignam (p.26).
- The Anthropocene – Justice and the future of human / nature relationships?: Ken McLeod (p.27), Sam Altman (p.30).
- Next Steps: How to get involved (p.32).
I strongly commend this publication to you with thanks to the editors, Geoff Evans and Sam Altman, to each of our distinguished contributors and to the Environmental Justice Working Group and its recent forums, which provided much of the content and inspiration for this special edition of the Discussion Bulletin.
