#ESS2024: “The Social Side of the Climate Crisis”
29 February-3 March 2024
Washington Marriott at Metro Center
As scientific consensus about the effect humans have on the climate is indisputable, increasing attention is being given to understanding the role that society plays in both creating the climate crisis and solving it (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group 1 2021; Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group 2 2022; Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group 3 2022; also see Oreskes 2004).
Our presidential plenaries will bring together prominent policymakers, journalists, community leaders, and sociologists to discuss a range of issues related to the societal causes, consequences, and solutions to the climate crisis. Across these plenaries we will focus on the important role that society and sociology plays in our shared understanding of the climate crisis.

What Is ESS?
Our Society was founded in 1930 to advance sociological research, promote the effective teaching of sociology, develop more vital relationships between sociology and related disciplines, and to use the tools of the social sciences to address social problems. We publish a peer-reviewed journal Sociological Forum, host an annual conference, support workshops, and award prizes for excellence in the discipline.
