Event description
What challenges and opportunities are there for strengthening solidarity in furthering the goals of climate action and planetary justice?

About this event

Convenors: Michele Lobo, Eve Mayes and Laura Bedford

A blended one-day symposium on climate crisis and response within and beyond the academy.

On this day experiences of action will be shared from those positioned within and beyond the academy seeking climate justice. They join from Australia, India, New Zealand, Canada and Scotland to explore the dilemmas of the relationship between activism and the academy.

The day builds on two years of dialogues convened by the Earth Unbound Collective: a collective situated at the nexus of debates on migration, xenophobic nationalism, Indigenous dispossession, extractive capitalism, extinction and climate change. Earth Unbound seeks to unravel boundaries to strengthen the disparate and collective movement for climate justice that has been expressed in blockades, land and environmental defender actions, mass protests and strikes, digital activism, as well as more ‘everyday’ activisms.

We invite you to join us in mobilising collective response-ability and climate justice.
