2020-06-07, 11:00–13:00, Workshop tent 2 (english)
In this interactive workshop, we discuss anti-capitalist and anti-colonial perspectives on the climate crisis using a variety of case studies. Everyone is talking about climate justice – but what does the term actually mean and what does it do in different contexts? And what can we as activists learn from the theory and praxis of anti-colonial struggles and the experiences of the environmental justice movement?
The workshop will be held in English.
