The concept of climate justice is frequently discussed within academic literature focusing on the societal impacts of climate change or climate policy. Rather than focusing on climate justice from the perceptive of academia, NGOs, protest groups, or politicians, we are interested in what the Norwegian public deem relevant with regards to the relationship between climate change and injustice. In this presentation, I show the results of asking a representative sample of the Norwegian public (N = 1647) the open-ended question “There is sometimes talk of injustice in relation to climate change. What, if anything, do you think might be unjust?".
