General Description

Intersecting social and environmental challenges are affecting and endangering the human and non-human realms on earth. This has intensified demands for justice, with some scholars proposing the concept of  ‘planetary justice’. However, what exactly planetary justice means and whether this resonates with existing scholarship and practice of justice, especially in the ecosocial sense, is currently underexplored.

This joint initiative between the Earth System Governance project and the Center for Environmental Justice of Colorado State University aims at establishing an international network of researchers who are interested in exploring the place of planetary justice within their thinking and practice on ecosocial justice. For this reason we are conducting a series of webinars across different world regions under the title ‘Exploring Planetary Justice’. Participants are invited to address three main prompts drawing on their own research and experiences, which we will compare and synthesize at the end of the webinar series. In this first webinar we focus on South America.


  • Andrea Baudoin-Farah, Colorado State University, USA


  • Joel Correia, Colorado State University, USA
  • Verônica Korber Gonçalves, Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil
  • Grettel Navas, University of Chile
  • Iokiñe Rodríguez, University of East Anglia, UK
  • Andrea Zhouri, Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil

This will be a 90-minute event with 60  minutes for panelist comments on the below prompts, and 30 minutes for questions and discussion.


1. What do you see as the major theoretical and political tendencies within ecosocial justice in your region?

2. What are the forces for or against ecosocial justice in your region, in addition to the global or planetary levels?

3. Has the concept of Planetary Justice or something similar found its way into your region? How? What does Planetary Justice mean to you?
