Public Lecture: Tahseen Jafry (Glasgow Caledonian University)

May 30 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Title: About Climate Justice: What Does it Mean and What Lies Ahead?

Abstract: In July 2023, Europe reached scorching milestones with relentless heatwaves and Scotland had its hottest June ever. Several regions grappled with unprecedented rainfall, triggering ecological and socioeconomic upheaval. However, impacts aren’t equally distributed, those who contribute minimally to carbon emissions, find themselves on the frontline of these erratic weather extremes. 

Despite being on our doorstep, the reality of climate disparities and injustices remains largely hidden. Scotland must prepare to connect with and apply a climate justice framework. This talk will explore how to embrace the changes we are witnessing in our climate and delve into a positive dialogue on what we needs to be made to combat climate inequality, ensuring well-being and economic prosperity for all. 

 

 The second lecture will be followed by a wine reception (location to be announced) – all are very welcome to attend!
