The World in 2050 – online conference
Several SU scholars are taking part in an exciting, “nearly-carbon-neutral” conference, “The World in 2050: Creating/imagining Just Climate Futures,” organized by UC Santa Barbara’s Environmental Humanities Initiative.
You can register for free and take part in the discussion until Nov. 14. There are many video presentations, including keynotes by Bill McKibben, Margaret Klein Salomon (Director of The Climate Mobilization), and Erik Assadourian (Senior Fellow at the Worldwatch Institute). There are panels on food and agriculture, education (with our own Susan Dieterlin), work life and climate, indigenous futures (with Phil Arnold and Rachel May from SU), literature, cinema, and more.
