Karen Bell is a Bristol-based environmental justice academic, author and activist. She will discuss how the Latin American left is leading the way globally in achieving environmental justice – and what we can learn from them. Environmental justice aspires to a healthy environment for all, as well as fair and inclusive processes of decision-making. There are numerous barriers, including a lack of citizen power; industrialisation processes; the influence of harmful dominant values and the capitalist political and economic system.
