The Taskforce on Planetary Justice in Earth System Governance Research brings together an interdisciplinary group of scholars who are concerned with questions of justice on a planetary scale in the context of profound transformations of the earth system.

The Taskforce will organise global debates on these issues through maintaining an interactive website with frequent webinars, interdisciplinary workshops and panels on thematic issues at Earth System Governance conferences and other venues, and joint publications in the form of special issues and edited volumes with major university presses.

The Taskforce had an initial meeting at the 2016 Nairobi Conference on Earth System Governance, 7-9 December 2016. A special conference stream was included to reflect this in Nairobi on global inequalities to provide ample space for discussing approaches, theories and findings regarding Planetary Justice. A similar stream was also included in the 2017 Lund Conference on Earth System Governance.

The formal launch of the Taskforce will take place at a workshop in Utrecht on the 8th-9th of March 2018.
