climate change, environment, nature

NextGen for Environmental Justice.

Crises, such as the Covid-19 pandemic and climate change, have shown us again in 2021: in times of complex global challenges, it is essential that political engagement and media reporting are informed by scientific findings. The response to complex crises and the implementation of the 2030 Agenda also depend on effective collaboration between science, media and politics. New ideas are needed – especially in the face of the ever faster spread of fake news and the growing importance of social media in information gathering. What are the alternatives and how can we initiate the change demanded by younger generations? At the invitation of the Swiss Embassy in Italy and the Istituto Svizzero, young Italian and Swiss researchers, journalists and activists will address these questions in the context of environmental justice. They will discuss opportunities, risks and solutions in a transdisciplinary workshop moderated by Dr. Sarah Walker (Department of History and Cultures – Geography section, University of Bologna), followed by a panel for the public.

The panel for the public begins at 6 pm and is followed by an aperitivo.

The event will be held in English and will be also livestreamed here below.
