 Academy Discourse: Climate Justice: Challenge and Opportunity

Mrs Mary Robinson, MRIA

Monday 20 December 2010, 6 pm, Academy House

Mary RobinsonAt the close of the year 2010, we must take stock of the meager progress we are making on one of the world’s greatest human rights challenges: climate change. It is a problem that originates in the discipline of science, but whose solutions span so many areas, including international relations, law, economics, technology innovation, social change theory and many more. A far greater concerting of effort is required across sectors and nations – and a focus on opportunities as well as threats – to tackle climate change successfully in this decade and beyond. A climate justice approach provides the conceptual foundations for this way forward.
