LI CPD: Greener Recovery Festival
22 Mar 2021
Day 3. 1 Opening and Keynote – Working together towards Climate Justice and Climate Equity
Locally, nationally and globally, attention to diversity and equality translates into people centred environmental policy. We live in a rapidly urbanising world. In the UK, more than 80% of our population now lives in urban areas. Alongside overarching themes such as biodiversity, urban specific issues are coming to the fore, including themes such as design, access to nature and the vital role of urban green spaces in the context of mental and physical well-being. This session will uncover the context for climate justice and climate equity and the impact of climate change on disadvantaged communities locally and globally. It will then explore actions to address issues of climate justice and climate equity.
