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