The session seeks to offer an insight into an environmental justice
perspective emerging from the Global South: the decolonial environmental
justice approach. Latin-American environmental justice movements have
developed notions of justice alongside decolonial thought, offering
insights that seek to understand how the persistence of colonial values
(coloniality) sustains injustices, violence, and dispossessions. The
session seeks to engage with the following questions:

   - What can socio-environmental conflicts in Latin America tell us about
   the necessary transformations from an emancipatory perspective that seeks
   to build greater social and environmental justice and reduce violence?
   - What are the roots form the Latin-American decolonial justice and what
   can we learn from the experience and practice of some of these groups in
   the politics of 1.5°C?
   - What does the reconfiguration of politics and space of warming
   overshooting mean for climate/environmental justice in different
   - How are calls to address the ‘urgency' for emission reductions coming
   from different groups across the political spectrum shaping the emerging
   politics of life under the warming condition?
