Call for Contributions: Interconnected Voices: Climate Change, Equity, and the Way Forward


25 - 26 Nov 2020

Application deadline: 30 October 2020


The international online conference Interconnected voices: Climate Change, Equity, and the Way Forward provides a lens towards climate injustice within the broader context of climate change in 2020 by bridging a variety of processes, strategies, practices, and actors. The two days online conference aims to discuss these challenges in an interdisciplinary and inclusive way. Instead of moving scholars emitting additional and avoidable CO2, we want to move ideas, inspirations and motivation in our interactive online format.

 

Climate change is a global and urgent issue that requires all existing brainpower. Creating a workspace where currently underrepresented groups can enter, will encourage more diverse perspectives, will have a broader reach and enable more creative, holistic, and sustainable solutions to the pressing issues we are facing. This conference aims at including a more diverse range of voices into the discussion.

 

The call for contributions refers to the following sessions:

 

25th November 2020: Climate Change

  • Challenges of climate change on water, energy and environment (presentations)
  • Technical solutions - renewable energy (presentations)
  • Economic solutions (presentations)

  • Interdisciplinary solutions (presentations)

26 November 2020: Climate INjustice

  • Different perspectives on climate justice (presentations)
  • Workshops on climate justice: how can we work on inclusive solutions? (workshop)

The presentations will have a time slot of 15 minutes and 5 minutes of Q&A; the workshop time slot is 2.5 hrs. We also welcome all other types of contributions (videos, talks, picture shows with explanation etc.).
