Abstract

This chapter develops an agenda for the fostering of disabled environmentalism, demonstrating how such an agenda, through the centralising of disabled bodies, can enable environmental justice movements to be truly inclusive of all people's needs. It provides a broad overview of the barriers that disabled people can experience when attempting to participate in environmentalism – both in everyday environmentalism as well as in the organisation and implementation of more public forms of activism. It also provides both the context for demonstrating the necessity of developing disabled environmentalisms, as well as a space for readers to critically reflect on the inclusivity of their own environmental practices. The chapter highlights the importance of ‘cripping’ or centralising the disabled body within environmental justice movements in order to develop a disabled environmentalism disentangled from its normative roots and, thus, capable of imagining truly socially just environmental futures.
