Climate (In)Justice and Education Symposium at University of Cambridge

This Climate (In)Justice and Education takes place  on Monday, May 20 · 1:30 – 4:30pm at Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge.

In this symposium we tackle the global climate crisis and how it impacts education. We pay attention to climate equity and justice as a global concern, including in the context of conflict, examining what role education can and should play. This symposium will stimulate debate about the challenge of environmental degradation that is largely caused by countries in the Global North, but disproportionately affects those in the Global South. It will identify the role of education in supporting the Sustainable Development Agenda to ensure the world is protected now and for the future.
