The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development makes climate change and responsible consumption key priorities for both industrialized and emerging economies. Moving beyond the Global North, this book uses innovative cross-national and cross-generational research with urban residents in China and Uganda, as well as the UK, to illuminate international debates about building sustainable societies and to examine how different cultures think about past, present, and future responsibility for climate change. The authors explore how far different nations see climate change as a domestic issue whilst looking at local explanatory and blame narratives to consider profound questions of justice, between those nations that are more and less responsible for, and vulnerable to, climate change.
