COP26 International Development: Justice and Climate Change With David Brown & Diana Jimenez Thomas Rodriguez From University of East Anglia
8th November 2021 @ 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.
- Landscapes/human environment in the UK
- The challenge of resource management
- Diverse identities in the United Kingdom and the need for mutual respect and understanding
- Human Geography and changing places
- Population and the environment
- UK politics: democracy and participation; pressure groups
This session is part of UEA’s COP26 series, exploring links between different fields of study and issues relating to the environment and climate change. COP26 is the name of the UN Climate Change Conference taking place in Glasgow from 31 October – 12 November 2021.
