Event description

Description

Consented brings you ‘Reframing Environmentalism’, an event aimed at highlighting the intersections between race, gender, colonialism, capitalism and the looming ecological disaster. The event will be split into two panels and will link the environmental movement to contemporary political discussions.

Our first panel titled ‘Decolonising Environmentalism’ will explore how histories of colonialism have been erased from contemporary environmental discussions, racist mainstream environmental narratives, as well as the neo-imperial nature of resource extraction.

The second panel ‘Reframing Environmentalism’ will critically examine the ways in which we need to reframe the environmental movement in order to revert the current environmental crisis. We will try to pose some “solutions” as well as debunking the narratives surrounding “green capitalism”. Panellists will discuss activism, the ‘movement’, the future of cities and technology and consumption/inequality.

The day will be split as follows into two panel discussions with a 30 minute break in between:

Decolonising Environmentalism

  • JJ Bola (Spoken word poet and author)

  • Emma Ako (Founder of {mimi : ninyi : sisi))

  • Dr Sheila Sheikh (Goldsmiths University)

  • Josh Virasami

Reframing environmentalism

  • Farah Ahmed (Julie’s Bicycle)

  • Sakina Sheikh (Platform)

  • Asad Rehman (War on Want)

  • Pasco Sabido (Corporate Europe Observatory)

This event will take place on the 20th of August from 1pm at Birkbeck University Malet Street campus in room B34. If you want to attend but cannot afford a ticket please email consenteduk@gmail.com
