Event description
shado is returning to The Curtain to host its first in a series of panel discussions on the theme of our third issue, Climate Justice

About this Event

How do we respond to the existential crisis that is climate extinction through intersectional and informed decisions? Quite possibly, through grassroots activism – and we'll be hearing from those at the frontline.

Chair:

Hannah Robathan

Hannah Robathan is the co-founder and co-editor of shado

Panelists:

He has helped lead the global movements for climate justice at the UN climate talks for over a decade and is a key figure in developing a Global Green New Deal to tackle the climate crisis and global inequality.
