The Ecological Present and Future: Workshop on Justice, Conflict and Power

16.01.2015

Our actions today may produce effects far beyond their geographical and temporal locations. Issues such as global inequality, climate change, and overpopulation generate challenging and complex problems – problems that can effect not just current generations, but generations in the future as well.

This workshop will address myriad questions of justice that apply to both current and future generations, and investigate what kinds of obligations exist between them.

Every CliSAP-member is free to participate, but please send a notification to: meike.demgendummy@uni-hamburgdummy2.de

The workshop is held in room 22/23, Bundesstr. 53.
