CLIMATE VIOLENCE, HISTORY AND RESISTANCE

Exploring a Bigger Picture

Presentation by Kooj Chuhan

  • What is the framework in which we are led to understand climate change by our major institutions, businesses, policy makers and writers?
  • How do ideas around race, displacement and perspectives from the global ‘South’ (including indigenous people’s movements) inform our understanding and action?

This workshop will provide an opportunity to explore the above questions as well as:

  • critique of Western ways of seeing climate change
  • diaspora interest in climate change
  • impact on migration from the South
