A transatlantic discussion: The fight for climate justice

How does climate change impact different communities around the world? How do different groups—especially those that are politically and economically marginalized—fight for climate justice? What can we learn from real-world events about which strategies are successful in order to shine a light on ways towards a more just and sustainable future?

Join us on December 2nd at 12 PM (CST) /1  PM (EST) /7 PM (CET) for a 60-minute exchange with US Consul General Darion Akins (U.S. Consulate General Hamburg), professors Dr. Anita Engels ( Universität Hamburg), Reynaldo Morales (Northwestern University), and Kimberly Marion Suiseeya (Northwestern University) on climate justice and social movements fighting climate change.

This conversation will emphasize climate impacts and the fight for justice by Indigenous Peoples and other underserved and marginalized groups. Drawing from recent examples, such as Rights of Nature, Land Rights, and fossil fuel divestment movements, the speakers will discuss the latest developments and climate actions that have come out of the COP26 and which might shape future movements and people’s actions.

We invite all audience members to actively take part in the discussion and share their own involvements with climate movements.
