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?
