The climate we create will shape the world our children, and the children of other nations, live in. Yet until 2019 and the entry of young people into climate change politics, our responsibilities to children and unborn generations had been little discussed. This raises questions of ethics, policy, and the role of experts in informing those questions.
Through a series of presentations, soapbox talks and interactive group discussions, this meeting of the Climate Change Network provides an opportunity to consider the generational dimensions of climate change. It will allow us to explore the research being conducted at the University around this topic and touch on what the University itself is doing to tackle climate change.
Network members and others working on issues related to this theme are encouraged to get in touch with Alice Seaton if they would like to contribute to the Soapbox talks.
