Climate Justice

The Climate Justice Interest Group (CJIG) facilitates scholarly, pedagogical, and practical conversations and discernments at the intersections of climate change and justice, from the unique viewpoints and capabilities of our scholarly bodies. In the first year of our seven-year charter (2016—Toronto), the CJIG session was hosted by the SJE and focused on justifications for, and feasibility of, “conference sabbatical” concepts, which are gaining increasing attention in scholarly bodies around the United States and globally. Future years’ meetings will continue this inquiry while also expanding to considerations of climate justice and race, as well as other topics.

All members of the SCE, SJE, and SSME are warmly invited to participate.

Topic sessions for future meetings will be discerned by CJIG members and acted upon by the leadership team.
