Description

If we changed the way we thought about climate change instead of it being ‘just a problem for science to solve’ to a problem about social justice, could we come up with a solution that addresses injustice that would help these communities and climate change at the same time? Can fairness create a green future?

As part of the ESRC Social Science Festival, the Climate Justice Scholars from the University of Reading will, on Saturday 11th November, be hosting an afternoon exploring different climate justice topics through presentation-slams, interactive posters and challenges. Aspects include how to distribute the benefits and burdens of climate action within and across countries, what duties we owe to future generations, the balance between individual, states' and corporations’ responsibility, and the links between gender and climate justice across societies. Whether you’re an expert in judging fair decisions or you still think that scientists were joking about putting mirrors in the sky to reflect the sun (really), there’ll be something that will get you thinking differently about the effects of climate change.

To top it all off, there will be a screening of the thought-provoking film ‘Greedy Lying Bastards’ – which exposes the deceit of the fossil fuel industries affecting vulnerable people – followed by an audience discussion chaired by university academics. Drinks and snacks will be provided to fuel the fun and debate!
