Hot on the heels of the State of the Union debate and just in time for COP24, the Oxford Climate Society’s last event of term was a great discussion on some of the current issues and solutions in tackling climate change. A well-rounded panel consisting of Myles Allen, Professor of Geosystem Science; Thomas Hale, Associate Professor at Blavatnik School of Government; and Radhika Kholsa, Research Director of the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development.
It is easy to forget just how many aspects of our existence are infiltrated by the effects of climate change, how closely climate is interwoven with and can impact social constellations. This Trinity Term’s last panel event on Monday, 14th May 2018 aimed to shed light on an area that is often overlooked: how climate change affects women – how women and climate may influence each other. Judy Ling Wong, painter, poet and environmentalist best known as the Honorary President of Black Environment Network (BEN) and Lisa Shipper, Environmental Social Science Research Fellow at the University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute, spoke about their views on this matter.
