Thursday 21 October 2021, 7-8.30pm

Streamed live on MS Teams

Around the world, it is people of colour who will suffer most from climate change, even though it is majority white countries that bear the greatest responsibility for causing the crisis in the first place. This talk will investigate the structural racism of climate change, why climate impacts divide along racial lines, and how it acts as a multiplier of existing inequalities - before looking at some possible routes to climate justice.
