The Challenges Of 2030: Criminology’s Contribution To The Climate Crisis With Dr Lowri Cunnington Wynn From Aberystwyth University
November 2 @ 12:00 - 12:45
As part of Aberystwyth’s exciting The Challenges of 2030 series, Dr Lowri Cunnington Wynn from Department of Law & Criminology will present Criminology’s Contribution To The Climate Crisis.
There is no doubt that the world is facing a significant and complex climate crisis.
Current debates within Criminology adopt a Green perspective, and this session will introduce students to the main theoretical approaches within Green Criminology, with particular emphasis on international perspectives and solutions to the climate crisis.
In addition, Dr Lowri Cunnington Wynn will introduce concepts of ‘environmental harm,’ vs ‘environmental law.’
Green Criminology is central to students’ understanding of a changing world, and this session will explore the complex dependence between humans, nature, the changing climate and its relationship to harm and crime.
