This event, happening next Saturday in Hulme, looks to be a useful opportunity to meet like-minded people and think a bit about how we got into this mess, and who is suffering right now (hint: it isn’t just polar bears). It is NOT organised by Manchester Climate Monthly. See below for contact details.
Southern Voices: Workshop on Saturday, January 21, 2012
CLIMATE VIOLENCE, HISTORY AND RESISTANCE: Exploring a Bigger Picture
Presentation by Kooj Chuhan
· What is the framework in which we are led to understand climate change by our major institutions, businesses, policy makers and writers?
· How do ideas around race, displacement and perspectives from the global ‘South’ (including indigenous people’s movements) inform our understanding and action?
This workshop will provide an opportunity to explore the above questions as well as:
· critique of Western ways of seeing climate change
· diaspora interest in climate change
· impact on migration from the South
