The aim of this research is to analyse, deconstruct and expose the current framework of climate change policies, in order to link climate change issues to their socio-spatiality, and to reframe the problem.
The first question is how to move beyond the fetishization of CO2 which dominates the current climate change narrative. The market approach fostering carbon trading and financialization is widening the distance between real processes and the representation of climate change. The problem is limited to CO2 assumed as the Enemy, reducing the complexity of territories and practices underlying the carbon emissions trends.
How, then, to embrace the socio-spatiality of injustice beyond the simplistic consideration of its geopolitical component? Indeed, the apocalyptic frame dominating the climate change discourse reflects the tendency towards a depoliticization of society through environmental issues. On the contrary, the mutually sustaining processes of spatial and capitalist uneven development are active in the production of climate change, as one of the contradictions emerging as a threat to the survival of the minorities and of the spaces of confrontation.
The hypothesis of this research is that widening the perspective by exploring the situations of conflict can help avoiding this impasse. The struggles demanding the right to the city as appropriation are the most fertile terrain for the insurgence of different approaches to the environmental issues, including climate change.
