Disability and Climate Justice
22nd of October 4-5:30pm BST
Disabled people have been an overlooked group in climate change negotiations, policy-making, and program implementation to date. Join our Disability and Climate Justice webinar to learn about the importance of disability rights in climate mitigation and adaptation efforts. Our panel consists of disability and climate researchers Prof. Sébastien Jodoin and Dr. Yolanda Muñoz who will discuss their research on the disproportionate impacts of climate change for persons with disabilities. Susie Fitton, a Policy Officer for Inclusion Scotland will discuss her work which ensures that disabled people are involved in the policy making processes in relation to climate change in Scotland, at local and national level. Aidan Moseby, a disability artist and curator will talk about disability, diversity and inclusion in arts and culture. Aidan will discuss their PhD in the effect of art on climate change with disabled people and how disabled people are disproportionately impacted from climate change.

Climate Fringe Networking
September Date TBC
Are you missing events and gatherings? Those serendipitous moments in the queue for coffee at a conference, in the chat after a meeting, or in the pub when ideas spark and collaborations are formed.
We want to change that. So let’s see what we can do with zoom – so join us for networking, chat (and it’s after-work so you can even bring a drink.)
