In Scotland, in 2002, Jack McConnell, the First Minister of the recently devolved Scottish Executive announced commitment to the concept of environmental justice. This paper explores how this method of dialogue through popular education between these communities affected by environmental injustice, and with NGO professionals and academics, has resourced local struggles and contributed to understanding of the social meaning of environmental justice. However, first an explanation is given of the context of discourse on environmental justice and how FoES’s understanding of these relations has developed.
