COP26 International Development: Justice and Climate Change With David Brown & Diana Jimenez Thomas Rodriguez From University of East Anglia

November 8 @ 10:30 - 11:15

 

 

The climate is in crisis and we need to change the way we interact with the landscapes we live in. But who gets to decide how that change is made? Who do we listen to, and why? And how do we make change fair?

In this interactive workshop, we’ll begin from a case study from Highland Scotland – where deer are causing conflict. And we’ll use it as springboard to start grappling with questions at the heart of the search for environmental justice.
