Event Details

As part of Climate Fringe Week, Interfaith Glasgow presents:

Climate Justice Begins at Home: Glasgow, Colonialism and the Climate Crisis

Thursday 23rd September 2021

6pm – 8pm BST

An online dialogue event for people of all faiths and beliefs

Glasgow is gearing up to host COP26 – arguably the most important global summit in human history – and calls for climate justice are mounting from faith communities and all parts of civil society.

But is Glasgow just the backdrop for this crucial summit?

Or has this city’s history in fact contributed to the deepening climate crisis?

Could learning about our colonial past help shape our understanding of what climate justice means?

How has colonialism impacted the environment and those who are experiencing the worst effects of climate change?

Join us at this interfaith dialogue event as we think about how we can build a stronger, more inclusive climate movement.

There will be opportunities for Q&A and further dialogue in small break out rooms.

All welcome!
