Book launch: “Climate and Society: Transforming the Future”
How do we tackle issues of climate change in a rapidly changing world? What role do people have in the transformation to a sustainable society? AdaptationCONNECTS welcome anyone interested in these issues to the launch of Climate and Society: Transforming the Future.
In Climate and Society, authors Robin Leichenko and Karen O´Brien presents current and emerging thinking on the social dimensions of climate change. The book frames climate change as a social issue that calls for integrative approaches to research, policy, and action. The authors explore dominant and relevant discourses on the social drivers and impacts of climate change, highlighting the important roles that worldviews and beliefs play in shaping responses to climate challenges. Situating climate change within the context of a rapidly changing world, the book demonstrates how dynamic political, economic, and environmental contexts amplify risks yet also present opportunities for transformative responses.
The book launch will be moderated by Ingerid Salvesen. Dr. Monica Sharma will provide commentary. Light refreshments will be served after the launch from 19:00.
The event will be in English.
All are welcome, but please register your attendance here by Sept 3rd:
