Equitable Transitions: Visions for a Sustainable & Just Future
Dates: February 12-13, 2021
This year’s theme, Equitable Transitions: Visions for a Sustainable & Just Future, recognized that the events leading us into 2021 were a-historical in their gravity and importance. At this critical juncture, PIEC 27 explored the most urgent environmental challenges we face and the social inequities that they expose and inflame. Equitable Transitions recognized that the issues of environmental justice that pervade society are not merely the result of natural or market forces, but of deliberate policy decisions of the past and present. Acknowledging that the environmental challenges we face and the pervasive social inequities that exist share common origins, PIEC 27 envisioned bold solutions to move us toward a more sustainable and just planet.
