Join Creative Carbon Scotland to discuss what intergenerational climate justice is, why it matters and how culture can be a way of giving a voice to future generations with experts in climate justice and creative education.
Wed 11 October 2023, 4pm – 6pm
Leith Community Croft, 4A John’s Place, Edinburgh, EH6 7EL
No one will feel the impacts of the climate emergency more than children and future generations. They are at the forefront of bearing the burdens of the climate crisis, yet they have little say over the decisions that will affect them more than anyone. Intergenerational justice argues that children have the right to be heard. That the climate crisis is a human rights issue and that climate action must reflect the needs and voices of everyone impacted. The complex interaction of the climate crisis with existing inequalities and injustices is an area where the arts and cultural sector can play a role in developing understanding and breaking down barriers to children participating in climate action.
The speakers include Dr Elizabeth Cripps, Senior Lecturer in Political Theory at the University of Edinburgh and Associate Director of CRITIQUE: Centre for Ethics and Critical Thought, and Lucy Power, Co-director of Rowanbank Environmental Arts and Education and their project Positive Imaginings, which provides children with creative climate education and an opportunity to imagine a positive future in the midst of the climate emergency.
