Sustainability and Intergenerational Justice


In this lecture, I will present several theories of intergenerational justice and I will explore the degree to which sustainability is sufficient or necessary to meet the demands of intergenerational justice. In other words, we will ask ourselves whether what we transfer to the next birth cohort can sustainable without being fair, and conversely.
