We’re just two months away from the beginning of the Paris UN Climate Talks. What will they achieve and what are the consequences of failure for the world’s poor?
We are organising an event with two really strong speakers on global dimension of climate change: Asad Rehman, Head of International Climate at Friends of the Earth and Professor Paul Routledge who holds the Leadership Chair in Contentious Politics and Social Change at University of Leeds’s School of Geography.
Paul Routledge has extensive experience of working with social justice movements in the Global South and has been involved in mobilisations in Copenhagen in 2009 and the Climate Caravan in Bangladesh in 2011. http://www.geog.leeds.ac.uk/research/meet-the-researcher/professor-paul-routledge/ He will be speaking on the subject of ‘Climate Justice in Bangladesh’.
Asad Rehman leads Friends of the Earth’s campaign for international action to prevent dangerous climate change. He’s one of Friends of the Earth’s spokespeople at UN climate negotiations. https://www.foe.co.uk/page/spokespeople Asad will be speaking on ‘Paris, People Power and Climate Justice’
Between them, Paul and Asad offer a fascinating insight, less than one month before the opening of the UN Climate Talks in Paris, into the world of climate negotiations and grassroots mobilisations – as well as the impacts of climate change on the world’s poor.
Come along to listen and share your views and experiences at this critical moment.
The meeting will take place from 7-9pm on Friday 6th November in the café space (Café Jaxx)of the Brian Jackson Centre. (Poster for the Climate, Justice, Paris Public Meeting)
