'Climate change - a perfect moral storm?'

Where does the responsibility in reducing global emissions lie? This crucial question is discussed at the next Sustainability Talks 7 February.

While the Paris Agreement outlines some of the commitments made by the global community to limit some of the most dangerous impacts of climate change, we are continuing to see a steady increase in emissions, threatening a safe and sustainable future. But how can individuals, organizations and our institutions address some of the issues posed by a changing climate?

In this Sustainability Talk, Kevin Anderson and Philosopher Folke Tersman will explore various ways in which one can relate to and contribute to addressing the greatest social and environmental challenges of our times.

Lecture and discussion with Kevin Anderson, Zennström Professor in Climate Change Leadership, Centre for Environment and Development Studies (CEMUS), Uppsala University, and Folke Tersman, Professor of Practical Philosophy, Uppsala University.
