The environmental agenda is growing year by year both in science, politics and civil society. May 25th a new dialogue project will launch online.
The project “Network for Global Justice and the Environmental Humanities” is a collaboration between AAU, RUC and AU. It will include a number of activities over the next years culminating in 2023 where AAU will host the project.
Are you a researcher in the field of environmental humanities, and do you wish to have a dialogue with activists and citizens about the environmental agenda? Now here’s your chance.
Environmental Humanities between Global Justice and Local Transition
This workshop brings together researchers in the Environmental Humanities and activists working for environmental justice from the bottom-up. The Environmental Humanities-network works towards advancing collaborations for global environmental justice, and this first workshop engages with civil society initiatives in Northern Europe.
The network want to create a new dialogue based on the environmental slogan to ‘think globally, act locally’, placing it in the context of bottom-up action for climate and environmental justice. With the urgency of transforming societies in the face of accelerating environmental crisis, the ways in which ‘the global’ can translate into local resistance and transition must be readdressed.
The network wish to facilitate debates on this basis to help environmental humanities researchers respond to the dilemmas, potentials and barriers for action that activists encounter in their work for local transformation.
Supported by DFF
The Network for Global Justice and the Environmental Humanities, funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark (DFF), is a collaboration across Aalborg, Roskilde, and Aarhus universities and will include a number of activities over the next 3 years.
