SYMPOSIUM: JUSTICE AND CLIMATE CHANGE: IMAGINING FUTURES IN THE AMERICAS

Thursday, March 12, 3:00-6:00 PM

Alexander Library, 4th Floor Teleconference Room, CAC

Climate change is at the center of public debate across the world. In the U.S. the Green New Deal and other political projects are driving conversations about envisioning sustainable development and restorative futures. In the global south, questions of social justice have been particularly important to consider the many challenges that must be addressed in relation to climate change. Featuring a keynote by Dr. Patricia Romero-Lankao of National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NRELL) and the University of Chicago’s Mansueto Institute for Urban Innovation, this symposium brings together scholars and Rutgers faculty working on understanding the social implications of sustainable planning, and the roles of literature plays in understanding justice and environmental change in multiple places across the Americas.

Reception with light refreshments and coffee to follow presentations.

Organized by the Center for Latin American Studies.
