Broadly speaking, the concept of climate justice recognises climate change as much more than an environmental issue - it's a far-reaching crisis with economic, social, health, and mobility implications for people around the world. 

The growing focus on climate justice brings hope: by applying a human rights lens to the climate crisis, we can work towards climate solutions which reduces inequalities between men and women, rich and poor, and older and younger generations. In this theme, members of the Climate Research Cohort bring their unique perspectives on climate justice from five countries and fields of expertise.
