Primary Session Category: Environmental Sociology
Session Code: Envi1-B
Session Format: Regular (Presentations and Discussion)

Session Description: The social interpretations, causes, impacts and solutions to climate change have increasingly been the study of sociological analysis. In this session, we will share research that furthers our understanding of the sociological dimensions of this key environmental issue. We welcome papers that focus on a range of climate change-related topics such as: adaptation, public opinion and behaviour, media representations and climate discourse, policy-making and governance, social inequality, climate justice, corporate responses, or social movements. We welcome papers that use a diversity of methodological and theoretical approaches to advance the sociology of climate change.
