In recent years we have seen the emergence of the field of energy justice and, concurrently, we have seen the centering of communities in discussions of energy policy, security, consumption, and transitions. In this time, communities have gained prominence as both the objects and subjects of energy debates, as the focus of conversations have increasingly turned to understanding both the ways in which existing energy decision-making procedures impact communities as well as the ways in which these same communities might become empowered within these energy decision-making and governance processes. This focus on communities is essential to effecting sustainable, just, and equitable energy for communities; it is all the more invaluable in a cultural climate rife with uncertainty, political distrust, and 'false news'.

Through this session, we would like to shed light on the various forms of environmental governance that center communities in some form or another and facilitate conversations among the diverse range of geographers working in this domain. Recognizing and embracing the wide range of focus areas and methodological approaches that are pertinent to questions of environmental governance, communities, and energy justice, we are excited to announce a variety of abstracts organized around the themes of community-driven decision-making, assessing and operationalizing energy justice (including frameworks for energy justice, and governance, policies and institutions.
