On the 9th of June, at 18:30 CET, the online discussion panel “Communication and Climate Justice” will take place. This discussion panel will be held in English and is free, with registration required through this form. This panel is organised by students of the Masters in Medical, Environmental and Scientific Communication, at the Barcelona School of Management (UPF-BSM).
Political inaction surrounding the urgency of climate change has led to aggravated environmental conflicts and a climate emergency. However, climate change is not the only factor to consider in these environmental conflicts. Socioeconomic, ethical and political factors play a key role and have been continuously overlooked. Climate justice reframes the climate emergency as not solely physical or environmental, but as a sociopolitical issue.
Communication in climate justice is essential to ensure that all voices and worldviews from the different stakeholders are taken into account in order to create sustainable, effective and just solutions for the environmental conflicts.
In this discussion panel we will discuss in depth the role that communication plays in the engagement of different stakeholders in decision making processes, and the inclusion of their narratives and experiences into environmental research and policy making regarding climate justice.
