Dr Leon Sealey-Huggins co-organises upcoming conference on climate justice with RiGG NET
Taking place next week on 2-3 September 2020, the Disruption, Decarbonisation and Reparations conference is an online series of events "bringing together activists, civil society leaders, and academics working towards the common goal of climate justice, broadly construed". The conference aims to touch on many of the diverse issues that form part of the climate justice conversation.
Dr Leon Sealey-Huggins, Assistant Professor in GSD, is a co-organiser of the event and will be involved in a number of sessions, including:
- Chairing a session on Wednesday 2 September titled ‘Justice centred transition and reparation’ (9:30-11 am BST)
- Speaking on Thursday 3 September during a session titled ‘Strategising pathways forward: COP26 and beyond when organising for climate justice’ (4-6 pm BST)
Each session during the two-day conference will consist of a panel-style event in which contributors present their work, followed by a group discussion and questions.
Staff and students are welcome to register and attend. You can register for the conference here.
