25th – 26th November 2020
In cooperation with the Arab-German Young Academy of Sciences and Humanities (AGYA), Reiner Lemoine Institute is organizing its first conference on climate change and climate justice. A special focus of the conference is to involve as many different voices and perspectives as possible in the discussion.
The climate crisis leads to far-reaching shifts in the world’s ecological, social and economic systems. These shifts are rapidly reshaping the realities and livelihoods of humanity, which is both victim and cause of these changes. We therefore need systems, societies, and individuals that are capable of adapting quickly to these changes and at the same time mitigate climate change. In addition, system changes are not taking place in the same form and intensity worldwide, which means that “climate injustice” is gaining momentum as a research topic and movement. The concepts of justice are also gaining importance in environmental and climate activism.
“Interconnected voices: Climate change, equity, and the way forward” offers a view on climate justice within the broader context of climate change in 2020 by focusing on a variety of processes, strategies, practices, and stakeholders. The two-day online conference aims to discuss these challenges in an interdisciplinary and integrative way.
The conference will take place on 25th and 26th November 2020 as a virtual event. The preliminary program is available now.
