LIFI 22: What’s Wrong With Climate Activism?

24th September 2022 - 24th September 2022

How do we platform marginalised communities to alter the mainstream narrative of climate talks? Without equality, can we ever achieve climate justice? The climate crisis will affect us all, but are we all engaged, do current political, social and media-led activities limit engagement across society and how do we platform marginalised communities to alter the mainstream narrative of climate talks? Taking on these major issues is an outstanding panel of speakers, bringing a unique range of ‘lived experience’ of the current barriers within the climate conversation, who will seek to answer the crucial question: without equality, can we ever achieve climate justice? This panel is hosted by Judy Ling Wong CBE, Honorary President of Black Environment Network and will be joined on the panel by; Pauline Castres, activist, artist, policy & advocacy professional Sara-Elvira Kuhmunen, President, Sámi Youth Association Sáminourra Dominique Palmer, activist and campaigner Lee Pivnik, artist and activist Hamza Yassin, cameraman, photographer and presenter
