GLOBAL FORUM NEWS
The Global Forum on Urban and Regional Resilience hosted a panel discussion entitled "Ecologies of Injustice" on April 10, 2017 held at The Inn at Virginia Tech.
The aim of the panel conversation was to bring together community members and scholars whose work addresses concerns of environmental justice in effort to increase our understanding of the ways in which the social, political, economic, and environmental landscape of injustice operates -- and what efforts are being made to intervene into the systemic conditions that produce injustice at all levels. Seven panelists (see attached participant biographies) provided wide-ranging perspectives, addressing environmental disproportionality on topics such as agriculture, extraction, and administration. The conversation was capped off with a plenary lecture by Dr. Simin Davoudi (Newcastle University) who urged the crowd of more than 70 to centrally locate a fundamental question of environmental justice within their work -- "When does unfairness become injustice?"
