DESCRIPTION

The injustices of the climate crisis require societal transformation. Climate policies that are transformative require integrating sacred, humanistic dimensions so that society can move beyond the narrow, patriarchal technocratic lens of climate isolationism that continues to dominate and be ineffective. This talk explores the inadequacy and dangers of climate isolationism, explores why feminist and antiracist values are essential for transformation, and explains why diversifying different forms of knowledge and wisdom is essential to accelerate and expand the shift from climate isolationism to climate justice.
