Building on research from the Fabian Society and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, The Fabian Society started to move the debate on climate change on from the environmental concerns to issues surrounding social justice.
This conference considered the follow questions:
- Are arguments about fairness the best way to tackle public disengagement from climate change issues?
- Who will suffer the most from climate change here in the UK?
- And how do we make the policy choices needed to win the arguments on climate change?
