Societal Adaptation on Earth: Past, Present . . . Future?
Online Symposium (Zoom)

With governments postponing climate action due to the pandemic, people are now facing the prospect of having to adapt to major environmental change with or without state support. Join us for an interdisciplinary discussion on the adaptability of local communities from historical and contemporary perspectives, and a debate on the role of knowledge and power in facilitating future adaptation.

This discussion will take place as a webinar on Zoom. The link to attend will be sent out to those who have registered via Eventbrite.
