Climate, Energy and Justice: An International Symposium, Monday June 21st 1 pm – 5pm. Kings College, The Strand Campus, London. Room K2.31.
Questions of climate change and how we attempt to mitigate it through transitions in patterns of energy use and production are run through with issues of inequality and justice. This symposium seeks to stimulate and promote an international dialogue focused both on the responsibilities of high carbon, consumer societies to rapidly decarbonise their energy systems, and the resulting justice implications for different population groups in different parts of the world. Themes of discussion will include the ethics of nuclear new build, climate justice principles and policies and future energy vulnerability in cities.
The symposium is convened by the Interdisciplinary Cluster on Energy Systems, Equity and Vulnerability (InCluESEV), a 3 year project funded by the UK Research Councils Energy Programme. http://sites.google.com/site/incluesev/
