Climate justice perspectives around the world (CJP)
Climate justice has become the rallying call of climate activists in recent years. Yet, the concept of justice is very subjective and it is often unclear how people understand the term climate justice in the public domain. This project explores public awareness of climate justice, and maps dominant themes in subjective understandings of the term, with data from 11 countries around the world.
