Public lecture by Professor Tahseen Jafry About climate justice: what does it mean and what lies ahead?

Join CEPPA (Centre for Ethics, Philosophy, and Public Affairs) for a public lecture on climate justice as part of Climate Week. The lecture will be given by Professor Tahseen Jafry of Glasgow Caledonian University.

In July 2023, Europe reached scorching milestones with relentless heatwaves and Scotland had its hottest June ever. Several regions grappled with unprecedented rainfall, triggering ecological and socioeconomic upheaval.

However, impacts aren't equally distributed: those who contribute minimally to carbon emissions, find themselves on the frontline of these erratic weather extremes.

Despite being on our doorstep, the reality of climate disparities and injustices remains largely hidden. Scotland must prepare to connect with and apply a climate justice framework. This talk will explore how to embrace the changes we are witnessing in our climate and delve into a positive dialogue on what we needs to be made to combat climate inequality, ensuring well-being and economic prosperity for all.
