Walton Center for Planetary Health, Room 409 (Session C)
UNESCO BRIDGES Series
How can we help the world meet the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals?
What do social justice and reduced inequalities have to do with equitable and just energy transition?
How do social, cultural, political, religious, and economic conditions determine which narratives about energy transition become dominant?
Who needs to be included in conversations about transitioning energy systems?
How can we better educate the public to understand and act in a timely way on just energy transition?
In this UNESCO BRIDGES series of Humanities Labs, we will focus on the principles outlined in UNESCO's Guidelines for Sustainability Science in Research and Education. This Lab, in particular, will focus on unjust extraction and just energy transitions, with a focus on actions leading to transition away from coal and towards clean energy.
- Collaborators TBA
Students will share their findings with the general public in a format of their choosing. Check this page at the end of the semester for more information.
