This talk draws on climate justice practice (movements and theorists), specifically in relation to the concept of “Just Transition.” How do climate justice movements theorize and imagine what “Just Transition” means in light of histories and ongoing legacies of colonialism and capitalism? This talk assembles movement frameworks and activism to suggest that we are in a critical moment that is about the transition from politics of recognition, to that of restoration and reparations in a moment of danger, broadly defined.
