About this Event

Hello! Dani here.

Following on from my podcast ‘Young Voices on Climate Justice’ exploring issues through the reflections of young people across Scotland and Malawi engaged with climate work, this webinar will pick up on the key takeaways from these reflections. The aim of this discussion will be to understand how we can move forward with a better conception of what climate justice means in both contexts of Scotland and Malawi, and how we might use these insights in defining our climate and social justice efforts looking to the future.

From a range of young perspectives I will address questions like:

  • How can we promote open dialogue between young people in different contexts?
  • What misconceptions might hinder the potential value of partnership in climate efforts?
  • What impact has colonisation had on Malawian agency in setting its own climate agenda and what might a country like Scotland be able to do to mitigate this?
  • What does ‘Black Lives Matter’ mean for Malawi’s climate efforts?

Time

(Thursday) 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Organiser

Scotland Malawi PartnershipWe exist to help coordinate, represent and support the many people-to-people and community-to-community links between Scotland and Malawi. We are an independent, politically-neutral charity core funded by successive Scottish Governments. Scotland's links with Malawi date back to 1859 and the travels of Scottish explorer Dr David Livingstone. Today, more than 94,000 Scots and 198,000 Malawians are actively involved in community-led partnerships between our two nations. 44.5% of Scots -almost half the country- can name a friend or family member with a connection to Malawi, making this one of the world's strongest north-south people-to-people links.
